It has been a long time since we have played with our colored rice. This week my daughter pulled out all the colors we had. When she realized we almost had a complete rainbow of colors, she asked if we could put them all together, and our rainbow treasure hunt sensory bin was formed!
To make our bin, I pulled out the large under the bed storage container I keep for sensory play.
My daughter helped to carefully pour each color into the bin. (We had a lot of the red, white, and pink mix from our candy cane rice!)
Once all the colored rice was in the bin, she hunted out some LEGO Friends, along with a small treasure chest and pieces of “gold.”
We scattered some of the treasure on top, and I hid some under the rice for her to hunt for.
For an extra touch of magic, I sprinkled a bit of glitter across the rice before she went on her treasure hunt.
She had lots of fun discovering all the hidden treasure, and I had lots of fun creating a sensory bin with my daughter’s help.
