|« How To Make A Wormery!||Crafty Spiders! »|
It may be getting colder outside, and play parks are wet and grass waterlogged, but there are some fun activities you can do inside even if you have limited space. Try this easy game on your own, with friends or at your toddler or childminding group and see how much fun you all have!
This is a great game for toddlers and pre-schoolers. You simply start them all walking around the room and you call out different type of beans. The children have to assume the appropriate pose as quickly as they can! You can choose from:
Runner Bean - the children have to run on the spot.
Broad Bean - they have to stand with their hands and legs as wide apart as they can.
Chilli Bean - they must shiver and pretend to be cold.
French Bean - they have to stand with one hand on their hip and say, "Oh, la, la!"
Baked Bean - they have to curl up like a tiny baked bean.
String bean - they have to all join hands.
Thin Bean - they must stand straight with their arms up high above their head.
Jumping Bean - they must jump around.
Frozen Bean - they freeze and stand perfectly still.
You could do it when walking in the woods or on the way to school or anywhere you need to distract them on a journey. If you're in the car, try it with just your fingers!
