Rainbow Scented Rice

This Rainbow Rice doesn't use vinegar or rubbing alcohol -- it smells AMAZING!

My kids adore playing with rice sensory bins. It is by far one of their favorite quiet time activities. I love how simple it is…but I cannot stand the smell of rubbing alcohol or vinegar. The harshness of both give me a headache. I could not even imagine running my hands through it to play. So, a rainbow rice made without vinegar or rubbing alcohol was a must!

Frozen Water Bead Sensory Bin

Frozen Waterbead Sensory Bin

Frozen Water Bead Sensory Bin: Water beads are quickly becoming a family favorite around here. We had a blast adding in essential oils to our water beads a couple weeks ago which piqued an interest as to how else we could play with water beads!

Frozen Water Beads

Water beads are tiny hard beads that resemble pellets. They grow when left in water, and become a slippery and squishy sensory material that kids enjoy playing with. Heading into this activity I had absolutely no idea what would happen if we froze water beads, but the kiddos wanted to do something similar to our dinosaur ice excavation activity so we gave it a try…

These frozen water beads were an absolute blast and while not an activity that held my kids attention for one long session, it was one that they visited frequently throughout the day. Am thinking this would make a fun observational experiment next time!
