Jellybeans have been a big deal at my house lately.
At Christmas, Santa left my little boy a jellybean dispenser. It immediately became his favorite Christmas present. It has been out of jellybeans for a while now, but in honor of family coming in town last week we let him refill it to show it off to them. Our local grocery store had an area where JellyBellys were sold in bulk from a dispenser, so he was in awe of being able to pick out any kind of jellybean he wanted in whatever amount he wanted (in theory, at least).
The other day we also did a bit of graphing and counting practice with jellybeans, based on a lesson we found online. Learning is always more fun when it involves food, right?
The other day we also found Crazy Jelly Beans (from Starburst… which has the best jelly beans anyway). We love them. We may have to stock up to have some after Easter too.
