Bible Verse of the Day

Sorting Beans Can Be Lots of Fun!

On one of the days when I was running out of ideas on how to occupy the kids’ time, I decided to try this Bean Sorting exercise I had read about in one of my newly-acquired homeschooling books.  It was an activity I felt both Ethan and Hannah could share and enjoy..and I was right.


I made use of the Organic Soup Mix beans that I had, and explained to them both that the task was to sort the beans according to type and color into separate cups.  They had to work together to complete the task.


It was fun to see how attentive both Ethan and Hannah were, trying to complete the task on hand.  I assisted in telling them that they could each take a different type of bean and then sort that out.

They were done in about 15 minutes.


And then I asked them to count the beans in the individual cups and I provided some sticker labels to label the number of beans.

Kids enjoy simple pleasures in life 🙂 – and they were so proud of their “completed assignment” that day and couldn’t wait to show Daddy when he got home.

    You should have given them a sackful so as to occupy them for hours! LOL

    Joyce says: Hey, kids are smart la…if you give them a sack, they’ll get bored because the task cannot be completed…then next time they won’t want to do it anymore! LOL

    Awww you have the sweetest kids ever la, Joyce! How did you teach them to behave and be so loving to each other? I think you should add another one more to the brood…the world should have more mommies like you 🙂 If I have a second child, I’ll definitely be seeking lots of advice from you!

    Joyce says: Awww…thanks Joey! You certainly made my day there…
