They are even getting better at not spilling them on the floor all the time!
I figure using spoons and scoopers (and a little fish from another game) can only help them with their control (manual dexterity) and so it is really learning, not just playing for them. Plus it is fun to see them concentrating so intently!
Eddie REALLY loves playing beans. Yesterday, he carried a glass jar of beans down to the family room from the kitchen because he wanted to play! I can't believe he didn't drop the jar and break it!
