My girls have LOVED this little sensory bin that they've been playing with for Christmas. The best part is that it is made from all natural ingredients with no dying needed.
I bought 2 lbs of each kind, rinsed them thoroughly, and set them out to dry. Some of the beans' skins peeled away because of this step, but overall it didn't affect the end product and I felt better about my kiddos playing with nice, CLEAN beans! Just make sure the beans are thoroughly dry before they go into your bin. Raw beans contain toxins that can make you very sick if ingested, so be sure to supervise your children carefully if they still put things in their mouth.
Spread out a sheet and then let your kids play!
