Crafting Magic with Pulses: Artistic Ideas for Kids

by Team Skillmatics on March 20, 2024

If there’s one thing that parents should take a keen look at about their kids, then it’s surely how little ones are keeping themselves engaged. Keeping your little ones engaged in innovative, fun learning activities paves the way to their future success. Kids who learn and have fun at the same time experience the benefits of early cognitive development, reasoning skills, and healthy psychological development. Which parent doesn’t want their kids to have a healthy mind and body? 

So if you’re seeking indoor games for kids that help them learn along the way, look no further than the humble pulses in your kitchen pantry! Yes, you heard it right – those colourful, nutritious legumes can double up as fantastic tools for exciting art projects that will keep your kids entertained for hours. In this blog post, we'll explore some creative and mess-free sensory bean activities for kids involving pulses that will spark your child's imagination and foster their artistic skills.

The Best 3 Pulses Activity for Kids

Let’s take a deep dive into the list of fun learning activities for kids using pulses: 

1. Pulse Mosaic Art

Kids can spend hours being creative with an assortment of dried pulses such as lentils, chickpeas, and beans. They only need a few blank papers, a stick of glue, pulses, and their immense creativity! They can create whatever they want on paper using the pulses in hand. There are endless possibilities to create patterns or vibrant images using different coloured pulses. From improving kids’ fine motor skills to introducing them to the concept of patterns and symmetry - the playtimes will be entertaining yet informative.

2. Pulse Sorting and Counting

If you want to help your kid get acquainted with different sorts of pulses, then this is the game for them! Sorting pulses by their names or types can be a fun learning game. Kids only need a handful of pulses of various types and that’s it! Challenge your child to sort them according to colour, size, or type. You can also ask them to count how many of each type of pulse they have sorted. This activity sharpens their cognitive skills and teaches concepts like categorization and numeracy.

3. Pulse Collage

When the usual arts & crafts materials and pulses come together, the results are nothing short of brilliant! Using blank papers, a glue stick, pulses and craft materials like glitter, feathers, and sequins together can create a collage masterpiece that your little one will be proud to show off. It’s the perfect solution to hone their creative bend of mind and lets them express themselves without the fear of judgement. You can also honour the little one’s hard work by turning it into wall art in your living room. The happiness in their eyes will warm your heart and encourage them to be more inventive in their approach to pulse activity.
