lemon scented rice

Just another way to play with the sense of smell and touch. This lemon scented rice was easy to make and smelled amazing.

What you need~
white rice
little bit of water
yellow food coloring
added extras (measuring cups, fresh lemon juice, etc.)
 In a bowl mix the rice, food coloring and little bit of water together. Once coated add some lemon juice and mix.
Let dry then play!
note~ we made few batches, adding different amounts of yellow food coloring each time.

While my kids played we talked about the different shades of yellow, the smell of the rice, and even how the fresh lemon juice tasted.

After this try making your own homemade lemonade!

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!
