Craft for the Weekend - DIY Colour Rice

Each Friday we aim to bring you an easy to do activity at home for the weekend! We know sometimes there's hours in the day you just don't know what to do with- so follow along and let us help make those hours fun and productive for your little monster! We try and pick activities that use materials you might already have in the house or can get from a quick pop into the shops! Hope you find these simple activities useful!!
Colour rice is a fun and easy sensory activity you can set up with your little monsters over the weekend. The night before colour the rice with your little monsters: All you need is white rice, food colouring, water and vinegar- Powerful Mothering has a great step by step! Colour rice is a great addition to small world play- cars, animals, dinosaurs and an easy to clean up sensory play- just get the hoover out! Add cups, bowls and spoon so your little monsters can scoop, pour and transfer- you know that's what they love to do best! If you have a flat try you can make a sensory writing board out of you colour rice like Discovery Kid Zone did:

Here's some great sites who made their own Rainbow Rice and used it in different activities:
My Kitchen Escapades
Laughing Kids Learn
You Clever Monkey
My Frugal Adventures
 
Have a fab weekend with your little monster!
