Shake It Up!

Find two empty cans and add a few teaspoons of uncooked rice in one and a handful of dried beans in the other. Remove any tabs and close up the top of the can with clear packing tape. Then, have your child shake them and listen for the softer sound of the rice versus the more rattle-y sound of the beans.
