Using rice for sensory play is fun and educational.
Rice play can help children develop their many senses and it
teaches them lots about the world they live in.
Babies especially love it and it is usually a product that is found at the back of the pantry!
Of course you don’t have to colour it for kids to enjoy the experience, however,

There has been many celebrations in our family lately.
Christmas, New Years and Possum’s 1st birthday have all made for a busy time of year.
With this in mind, I decided to create a ‘celebrations’ THEME around our rice play and add
some simple decorative items.
Possum loved it because she was able to pick up and examine each item as well as learn about it’s texture and weight etc. She also loved when I hid the items in the rice so she could dig and find them.
I later gave her some other items to play with in the rice.
I suggest doing this one item at a time, that way it doesn’t become an
overload for your little one.
Possum was particularly interested to see the rice move through the clear funnel.
I hope you enjoy this post and would love to see you make a comment.
