This Easter sensory bin is made with coloured rice, plastic eggs, little chicks and fine motor tools. Bright and colourful, this rice bin is fun for all ages.
TO MAKE THE RICE BIN:
What you need:
- dry rice
- coloured rice (see below)
- fine motor tools
- plastic eggs
- tray or bin
- fuzzy Easter chicks or colored pom poms
The coloured rice is always a favourite! It last forever and they get a ton of use out of it.
There are many variations for how to make this rice, we simply put the rice in a ziplock bag, add a drop or two of food coloring or washable kids paint, along with a squirt of hand sanitizer and give it a good shake! It smells so fresh too ????
You can keep a bin of various scoopers, spoons etc for our sensory bin play. I think all toddlers love anything having to do with dumping and scooping!
Add you contents to the bin and let children explore! Tweezers are great tools for pre-handwriting practice! They strengthen little fingers, getting them ready to hold pencils and pens in the future.
If you can’t find these little chicks, you can make some similar ones with pom-poms in our counting chicks busy bag.
After a while the rice will all be mixed together, creating a beautiful rainbow mixture!
