Rainbow sensory tub (August 2011)

We used rice for our sensory medium. The kids got to measure out the rice, add food coloring to the bags, and shake them till all the rice was covered.


Sandwich bags

rice ( I bought a big bag of the cheapest I could find)

food coloring

rubbing alcohol

measuring cup

big tub

Measure out 2 cups of rice per bag. Add 2 tbs of rubbing alcohol and food coloring. Shake bag till all the rice is covered. As you get the rice dyed set it out on paper plates to dry, it doesn’t take long. Once it is all dry you are ready to play!

After they had their fill of playing I put the rice into 2 different containers and added the toys for another day of play 🙂
