Whole Bean Coffee in the Process TablePosted: July 12, 2012 | Author: Jena | Filed under: Experimentation, Imagination, Outside, playing with our food, sensory, Small Motor Skill | Leave a comment »
I have 6 kids to take care of this week. I need some great ideas to engage and entertain them.
This is when Pinterest comes in super handy. I find an idea from Creative With Kids, to fill a process table with coffee beans.
The boys usually want to help me grind and make my coffee in the morning. Often times, they ask if they can play in the beans and grinds. My scrumptious coffee is way to precious to mix with little hands and spill on the kitchen floor.
I buy a very inexpensive bag of whole bean coffee at BJ’s after finding the pin and save it for a “rainy day.”
1. Smells good.
2. Gives kids access to touch and play with an object that is usually off limits.
3. The kids make pretend coffee drinks and soup
4. Fill and Dump with cups and spoons.
