Rice Sensory Bin
We decided to make a sensory bin because we had never had one before and I wanted to know what all the hype was about! We also hadn't even dyed rice different colors so I figured it was about time!
It turned out to be a great activity for Z and a good learning experience. I mixed in rocks that we had found at the beach and Z spent forever sifting through the rice and searching for them.
We mixed colors, used measuring cups, he used a slotted spoon to catch the rocks, spoons and tools to sift through the rice, and a funnel (of course where his protective eye gear!) to see which rocks would get caught. This activity kept him busy for a pretty long time and he had a blast.
