Rice Box - great sensory activity for toddlers
A rice box is a great sensory item for toddlers to play with. It is also a great indoor activity, when the weather is bad and we can't go outside to play. I bought 20 lbs of rice at Sam's club. Poured the uncooked rice in under-the bed container and added toys to play with. In addition, to playing with the shovels and buckets, we play treasure hunt in the box. One of us will hide an object in the rice and the other person will find it. When we get the rice box out to play, I place it on a sheet to help with the clean up. We have kept the rice box in a dry location and we have had it for 3 years.
