Fun with black eyed peas


D was out at farm adventures so it was just R and I at home. I decided to put together a sensory tub for him to explore. I chose black eyed peas as the filler and added some utensils for him to use to scoop and pour.


Firs,t I set it up by the wall with a cardboard tube attached to the wall for R to pour the peas into. He loved doing this and watching them all fall into the tub underneath ready to be scooped up again.


When he lost interest with this, I moved the tub into the living room and added some more pots and utensils for him to play with.


He had fun using the tweezers to pick up individual peas. It's so lovely to see his fine motor skills develop!



  1. This sounds like such a fun activity! I've seen quite a few people doing things like this!

    1. It's so fun for young children and lovely to see them explore.

  2. What a great idea. Looks really fun too

  3. Looks like a really great idea. I'll have to remember it to try when my son is older. I think my toddler now would scatter the beans everywhere!

    1. Yes mine makes a bit of a mess too but I find it's a good way to teach him not to. I tell him he should keep the beans on the mat even if they do get dropped outside the tub.
