i laid down a flattened cardboard box. I sat my son (3.5) down next to it. Turned cartoons off.

I filled two pots; one with dried egg noodles, and one with dried beans. Produced a few plastic cups, lids, a set of toy wheels, and some utencils.

Hours of not too messy fun.

This is awesome!

Lay down an old sheet next time - even easier clean-up since you can just pick up the corners and everything slides to the middle. Rice is fun to play with as well, and even smells good.

Sounds fun!

But be careful with dried beans, some are toxic when they are uncooked!
