It doesn’t get much better than a rice bin for toddlers. The sensory experience of colored rice provides a perfect backdrop to play and explore within a seasonal context.
This themed rice table will be fun for your 2-6 year olds.
- outdoor exploration loose parts
- plastic bug figurines
- fake flowers
- green rice
You don’t need this IKEA FLISAT table to set up a sensory bin. Use any old big, shallow container or tray you have on hand. I used to use a roasting pan when my oldest child was a toddler.
How to Dye Rice
- Add a Tablespoon of white vinegar and some food coloring to a quart sized plastic ziplock bag and mix.
- Add two cups of white rice, close bag and shake shake shake until rice is GREEN!
- Lay rice out on a cookie sheet to dry. It is usually ready for play in about 15 mins.
Happy spring and have fun!
