Transferring beans, rice, etc. from one container to another is a great practical life skill.
My daughter has always loved to do it.
She was just getting a little bored with transferring them from one bowl to the next.
So I tossed a few fun pots in there from another activity and she was happy again.
It also added the challenge of being more precise with her movements.
The small pots can be found at any craft store for super cheap and painted on your own if you wish.
