Tired and bored of being inside - this cold weather is killing us- I was determined today to find something new to do inside. Luckily it is not hard to be inspired via the internet/bloggers, and saw this.... http://www.themotherhuddle.com/.

Easily replicated with $4 in dry beans and a trip to the Walmart, and perfect for a morning free of boredom. If I was thinking about it I would have grabbed some alphabet letters to hide in the "sand", but we are plenty entertained with hiding animals, and using kitchen utensils as "sand" toys.

And, well, making a mess too.

Added bonus - leftovers. Seems like a dreary day, perfect for taco soup.

I had one of these for my kiddos! They adored it until they decided it would be fun to add water!!! What a mess, especially because I had used all black beans! I haven't made another one, but I should!
