Does your child love to help when you're digging in the garden or planting pots? The dirt can be a real mess, but with this sensory bin idea, the dirt is actually much neater. It's black beans!

At her blog Ebb and Flow, Elisabeth shares her idea for creating a planter filled with black bean "dirt" and plastic flowers! Look at all the fun to be had scooping and arranging! Don't forget a cloth underneath the bin to help when it comes to cleaning up dropped beans (but it sure beats cleaning up real dirt!).

(Thanks, Elisabeth!)
