These magical grains of coloured rice keep my kids entertained for hours on end! Easy to make and a wonderful gift for friends, rainbow rice is an inexpensive item to make for sensory play.
Today Sam has enjoyed some time scooping, pouring, digging, mess making (!) and imagining with his dinosaur figurines. We have sung dinosaur songs as he's played (Dino Stomp and Dinosaur Roar) and repeated words (stomp, dig, pour), all great for language development.
There's a bit of a clean up afterwards but it's as simple as a sweep and pan or vacuum and you're done. Great fun for pre-schoolers.
