Playing in the rice sandbox. So much fun!!
How did you do this?? Love it!
I got ziplock baggies put 3 cups of rice in each added 6-7 drops of food coloring and 2 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol(it helps dry the rice faster) then I poured them onto cookie sheets covered with paper towels and let it dry :)
Thanks for the great idea!!

DIY rainbow sensory box - this is different than ones I have made in the past!
Why would anyone WASTE that much food???? Horrifying.
Obviously you do not have a child with a sensory issue.... :(
having different types of sensory bins helps a child with sensory issues.. its all about different textures. the ignorance of some people. read up on sensory issues that a child with autism may have.
I think this is an awesome idea!
Yes it is Linda... Phoebe read this :
Sensory bins and sensory play became a staple in our house for everyday play
As he got older, we tried new sensory bin fillers. We made play doughs and painted with pudding. I made sure his little hands and mind were busy with textures and colors. Part of his SPD is low environmental awareness. He would often walk right past toys, step on them and barely glance at them even to this day. The ability to use sensory play to ground him and bring about awareness has proven remarkable. His little body is always in a rush and the option of keeping his hands busy with sensory play while we engaged made a big impact on his ability and interest to focus on our time together. We have even built an 8′x8′ sandbox in our garage!
As he has gotten older, we have used sensory play for so many early learning activities like books, letters, numbers, colors, fine motor skills and science. He has become a very hands-on child who is visually stimulated. Sensory play provides him with the necessary stimulation to stay connected to me and to his environment. Not every bin or play method I invite him to try works and not everything that works keeps on working. Children on the spectrum tend to demand a higher amount of novelty and sensory play or sensory bins achieve that desired outcome for him but provide a vessel for learning as well. I can not ask him to be something he is not, but I can seek out ways to help him be all that he can be, a happy child!

Rainbow Rice, great sensory idea! fill your own bag of rice (With fall colors?)
Popping rice sensory fun for kids. This rice is GREAT FUN dry. Add water for sensory play with sound effects or give kids spray bottles of colored water and let them paint a popping canvas- TOO FUN!
This is a great way to organize sensory materials so that each time the child is working with different materials (sensory objects).
Another pinner says, "My kids beg to play this game! Mommy and Daddy always lose. Our kids have better manners than we do now!" worth a try
