My girls love sensory play and our Rice Bin has been one of their favorites since they were pretty young. I have set up all different themed sensory bins with things that I thought the girls would find fun. They always seem to enjoy scooping and pouring the rice from one container to the next. When I found out about this child led Rice Sensory Bin Challenge I couldn’t wait to participate. The awesome part about this challenge is that it is a child led play project. All I did was fill one of our Plastic Storage Bins with some plain white rice and the rest was up to Juliette!
Here is what Juliette came up with:
She decided to add some of our Play-Doh toys to her Rice Bin. This included, plates, a spoon and fork, ice cream cones, an ice cream dish, a whisk, candles and a paint palate.
She spend lots of time scooping and pouring the rice from one cup to the next.
She also had fun making ice cream sundaes and singing “Happy Birthday!’
After awhile she came up with a Hide and Seek game for us to play. She would hide one of the pieces under the rice and I had to find it. Then I hid one of the pieces and she had to find it.
I loved seeing and listening to her as she played with the rice. She loved that she was in control of this activity, by picking everything out it was everything that she wanted and I loved that about this project!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun! I love the idea of hiding things in the rice. I'm sure your daughter really enjoyed taking charge. :)
