rice sensory bin (free play)

For this activity, I purchased a large plastic tub, measuring spoons, and scoops from the dollar store. The rest of the objects I had on hand (golf ball, marbles, rocks, etc). My daughter, who is three years old, absolutely loves this activity (She loves it so much that somehow half of it is on the floor when she’s done, which is fine because then we can practice Practical Life: vacuuming). It encourages small motor skills and imaginative play, among other things. Not to mention a boredom buster! I recommend changing out objects, scoops,  and strainers every other time she plays with the activity, or the interest will begin to wane.
