Here is one of my fun Halloween activities for the kids. Aren’t those cute Pumpkins and Ghosts? They are just painted beans! Then, use a sharpie to make the faces!
I actually got this activity from a garage sale from a teacher. I'm not sure what kind of paint was used on these beans, but it's very shiny! I'm going to guess it was spray paint. I've had a few people tell me that they have used that on Pinto beans, and that's what looks like is going on here! Thanks to everyone for helping us figure this out! ;) I can see lots more of these for the future (Green christmas trees, or maybe as ornaments?).
You can use them as is for sorting, patterning, counting, etc!!
Or you can add a fun picture for extra fun and activities. This is just a basic shape out of felt!
Aren’t those hands the cutest? I do this with kids as young as 18 months (just watch them to not put them in their mouths!)
We are joining the following parties; ABC and 123,
