Fun with Rice

Shapes and Letters (also works well with wheat and salt!)
  • Pour Rice in a tray with a high lip (a cake pan works nicely), just to cover bottom.
  • Show your child how you can use your finger to 'draw' a shape in the rice. "Here is a circle."
  • Shake the pan to coat bottom again.
  • Now, it is your child's turn.
  • Start with straight or curved lines, then simple shapes
  • When your child is comfortable, practice letters!
  • When you're done, you can still eat the rice
