I put out a bunch of cups, bowls, and measuring spoons with muffin tins and dried beans for him to "cook" with. He had a great time!
You do have to be a bit careful with this depending on your child and their age. Jaden did try to put one dried bean in his mouth even though he is past the "put everything in your mouth" stage. But, once he tasted it he spit it back out. We talked about not eating the beans because they aren't cooked yet and he didn't do it again.
