Where to find...

maccaroni (elbow) or some other large type of pasta cheap and in bulk?

 We nanny share at our house with 18 month old twins and I'd like to bring the sand box inside to the basement for the winter with some type of pasta in it for them to play.

FWIW - I'm not to hot on using rice as it's a carpeted area...

 

any other suggestions?

 I thought lentils maybe?

 

TIA! 

Our IF journey: 1 m/c, 1 IVF with only 3 eggs retrieved yielding Dylan and a lost twin, 1 shocker unmedicated BFP resulting in Jace, 3 more unmedicated pregnancies ending in more losses.
Total score: 6 pregnancies, 5 losses, 2 amazing blessings that I'm thankful for every single day.

Re: Where to find...

  • I really like the pasta idea.  I used lentils for DD's (very small) indoor mini sand box and they are nice but a bit of a pain to clean up. 

    The only thing I can think of is to check places like Sam's Club or Costco.

  • Ditto a bulk store like Sams.  

    Every fall we go to a pumpkin farm and they have a giant sandbox filled with corn.  DS loves it.

  • Sams :) also, you could use pom Poms and cotton balls.
  • pasta will crumble.  it seems beans would be better for sure.

  • My aunt uses beans in her classroom.  You can buy a huge bag of them at the grocery store for a few dollars.
