Don't believe everything you read online

I read online somewhere that small children like to sort beans.  "It's kind of like playing in a sandbox indoors", someone wrote, "but without the mess."


I happened to have couple of jars of ancient beans in the back of her cupboard and a very bored little girl who was looking for something to do.  The weather wasn't suitable for going to the park.  Mom wasn't feeling up to going to a museum or playgroup due to a bad cold.


So I got out the beans and a muffin tin and let her at it.  Just in case there are other moms out there who think that sorting beans sounds like a fun and relatively low-mess activity, it's definitely fun.

Woohoo! Just as long as she doesn't get the idea of putting them into little orifices...

Looks fun...but do you worry about her eating them/choking on them? My 1-year-old still tries to put new objects in her mouth...
