Toddler Time ~ Colored Rice

Awhile back I posted about making sensory bottles. After a refreshing weekend away with my husband, I returned ready to try my hand at some more toddler orientated projects.

This time I wanted to try my hand at a colored rice activity.

What I found was that for a 15 month old, it didn’t matter that the rice was colored. I also tried the idea to hide small objects in the rice for Tyler to discover. Again, he didn’t really care for hunting for objects.

He did, however, have a TON of fun feeling and playing in the rice! He favorite part was throwing it out of the container!

Look at that excitement... and yes, that is rice flying!

I will definitely let him play in rice again, but I will probably save myself the hours prior of making it pretty! He just wants to squish and throw it!-

Note: I would also put a tarp down in the play space. My deck and lawn are covered in rice!

The leftover rice I poured into a water bottle to provide some more sensory bottles. This time I hot glued the caps shut since Tyler can now open bottles.  img_58001
