Renewed Interest in the Lentil Tray

O has shown a renewed interest in the lentil tray over the past few days. This morning she said she was chopping walnuts to bake a birthday cake for me. She brought me a jar full of lentils and asked me to blow out the candles. I think we'll be playing pretend birthday for the next few weeks :)


  1. Cute.
    Mar's favorite make believe game is Birthday Party. Her doll should be 84 years old by now. It's led me to have an aversion to cake now, no matter real or fake. :)
    Have a good weekend!

  2. This looks fun! I gave my daughter different kinds of lentils and dried beans to play with months ago. The kidney beans still turn up from time to time in the most unexpected places! Like inside differnt toys or under the bed ... Did you get O to keep the lentils on the tray? Or did you just make your peace with the fact that they might turn up everywhere - like I kinda did?
    I'm just asking because I was thinking of making an inside-sandbox ... but I can't imagine that I would be as easy going when I find the sand EVERYWHERE in the apartment ...:-)

  3. Fun!

    I have a bucket of pinto beans my girlies have played with. The only down side is finding beans everywhere (and months after they've played with them!)
