In our earlier post, we discussed sensory play and how to set up sensory bins for young children. Today, we will talk about how to introduce sensory play to young children through an activity that involves coloured ice & rice. It teaches children about colour mixing and it rhymes too!
Requirements: Coloured ice cubes, Uncooked rice, Tray
Parental Involvement: High
Tip: More colours would make it more interesting. You can also make coloured rice and compare the differences between coloured ice and coloured rice.
This sensory bin activity teaches the child about observation, comparison, eye-hand coordination, cause and effect, and concentration. These are important skills that every child should master.
Are you excited to try this out at home? Do you think your little one will enjoy this activity? Let us know in the comments below or drop a note at email@example.com.
