This is our first time using coffee beans in a play idea. It was really enjoyable and a big hit. We set up a sensory bin with the coffee beans, cups, spoon, and some sugar. Then to go along with the coffee I gave my kids some loose tea, plates, and play dough.
They quickly went to work making donuts and little cakes.
This was their coffee filled doughnut :)
Swirled one, to make swirled donuts easy just rolla ball of play doh then make a thin line using a different color and wrap it around the ball. Then in the palm of your hand slowly twist the ball to make swirls.
The coffee beans will be stored away to play with again at another time and the tea went to our hermit crabs to enjoy :)
Have good day!~
