valentine's day rice tray

This is our valentine's day rice tray.
To dye the rice mix uncooked rice with some food coloring and a little bit of water. Let dry for few hours and done~
The paper towel "holders" are hard to get to stand on their own so I added rice inside each, you could just tie them to the sides of the tray though.
This was set up for fine motor skill practice and did the job!
We also talked about how things felt, shapes, and colors. 
Made for one great learning time.
