Here’s a fun variation on playing with rice as a sensory activity. Rice + bucket + toys never seems to grow old for tots in that 12 month to 18 month window.
But today, instead of random toys, we made it a “garden” for Veronika to plant – and uproot!
She loved the variation right away, pulling out the veggies, replanting the asparagus, and more.
Of course then the fun became emptying giant handfuls of rice on the floor, which was just fine with me since I love how easy rice is to sweep up at the end.
She kept busy with this the entire time I prepped dinner, crawling through big piles of it by the end.
Mistress Veronika, not contrary, how does your garden grow? With lots of smiles of course!
