For Easter this year I decided to have an activity for the children to do. I search on the great and powerful Pinterest for an idea.
I came across a Jelly Bean Activity that I thought was perfect for them.
- 2 bags of jelly beans ( 1 bag for each child)
- 1 box of toothpicks
First, I took each bag of jelly beans and poured them into a bowl for each child. I then took out all the black jelly beans for myself.
I put each bowl of jelly beans, and a handful of toothpicks on a tray for each child.
After our egg hunt was over, I gave each child a tray and told them they could use the materials in front of them to build whatever they wanted to build.
It kept them busy for a good 30 minutes or so.
Both children really enjoyed this. I am looking for new ways to do this activity with other objects. If you have any ideas, please leave them in the comments below!
