Where’s the bean game is fun for the little ones. Just before the end of the school holidays the family gets a bit restless. This is a favourite game which is incredibly satisfying. It is very important that you know how many jelly beans you are hiding so make sure that you count them. The jelly beans can then be placed on top of picture frames, the TV, on their pillows, door handles, window sills, even radiators! (if hiding on radiators make sure they are switched off).What ever you do make sure you tell them the winner is the one who has the most jelly beans so if they eat them they may not win! If they do not tally then either there are more beans to find, so the game has not finished or someone’s ‘bean’ eating them!
