Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 45 ~

Good morning! 

Along with the "official" first day of summer, came rising temperatures for us, making it almost too hot to be outside in the middle part of the day.   So I decided to try out a Pinterest idea for Luke that he would keep him busy inside during these times.   That's what I'm sharing today for Pinned it, Made it! Monday. 



Have you seen it?  It's almost like playing in a sandbox.....except with beans!  :) 

Here's the original pin:

Here's ours:





Luke absolutely loves this.  He keeps asking me if I will leave it out for him.  He has probably spent  hours playing "construction site".  He has played with it in the floor of the kitchen and on the table in the dining room.  I even let him take in the living room one day, but I found myself picking up beans off the wool rug later that evening.  :)



Easy entertainment!

Guess it's tempting for the big kids too.....I caught Joy playing in it!  :)



Now it's your turn!  I hope you'll link up something you've pinned and tried out from Pinterest.  But if you're just stopping by,  that's okay too.  Thank you for stopping by! 

Happy Pinning and Creating!  Have a great week!  :)

Mama,

I love this. :) It's so cute and fun and I think it just makes anyone want to go sit there and dig through it. ;)

I love you! 8! :)

Hi Tammy-- It looks like Luke is having fun!! My girls loved playing in the rice tub at playgroup. I made one at home when they were little. My mom use to teach 2-3 yr old Sunday school and the kids loved her bean tub.

I'm a slacker this week--I'm working on a swap and trying to get it done, so I'm planning 4th of July crafty fun for this weekend. Have a fun weekend!
