Dyed Dried Lima Beans for Math & Literacy

Dyed Lima Beans- pinterest

Yeah, you read that title right. Dyed Dried Lima Beans. I  saw this tutorial on Facebook, and I knew I had to try it! I followed the instructions and made 6 different colors: green, blue, yellow, orange, purple and red. They were really inexpensive to make (I bought the large bag for $5 and I still have half the bag left) and I have so many ideas for them!


I used a few to write letters and numbers on so students can use them in our loose part centers.


There are so many options for the rest of the dyed lima beans- sensory bin filler, loose parts, patterning, and whatever else students can think of to do with them!


These are going to be perfect to use with my Pattern Task Cards. I am really excited to use these this year, and they were so easy to make!
