Bean Bath Time

Fill up a child’s size blow up or ready made pool with dried pinto beans far enough so that the child can sit in it and their legs can be completely immersed in it. Having your child play and touch pinto beans allows them to have a tactile experience and grow in playing with messy textures. This activity is also great for increasing body awareness. Have the child play in the beans by pouring the beans on their body, scoop the beans with a shovel and put in a bucket, find hidden objects in the beans, make snow angels in the beans, etc. After the first couple of times playing in the beans children often view it as a preferred activity and they will often  have increased attention to non-preferred tasks that are introduced during bean bath time.
