Ice and rice sensory play

This is a first for us, unsure we didn't think of this before but my kids love playing with both so why not add them together?!
Ice and rice are both great sensory play objects and can be used many different ways. In this bin we made coffee ice and made the rice green with food coloring.
Other ideas are
~adding some objects to the liquid before you freeze it
~making the rice different colors
~adding different toys (my little pony is big in this house right now that is why we used them, but use your kids favorite toys)
~let your kids use their sense in this play time. (how does everything smell?, how does the ice and rice feel?,what color are the ice and rice?, and if your okay with it let them even lick the ice to see how it taste? again you use juice to make the rice or even flavored water. I just wanted to use coffee so I could make them a "mountain")

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
