This is a fun activity for toddlers/preschoolers that promotes eye-hand coordination, counting and number skills. I lay a sheet down (for easier clean up) but you can also use a big plastic tub.
I lay out some spoons and containers so the girls can practice scooping the beans.
We also use old egg cartons to practice counting. I will put 1 bean in the first cup, 2 in the second ect. on the first row. Then on the second row they have to match the amount on the first row.
