Kids Craft: Bean Shooter

alt

Sometimes you need an easy activity to keep a toddler occupied for a few minutes here and there. This is one of those.

If you don't mind sweeping up beans you may want to do this one outside. It's cinch to make and once you show your toddler how to use it they'll be happily occupied for quite sometime.

Cut off the last 1/2 inch of the top of the balloon

Place a bean inside where the knot sits
