A bag of Rice

Because both Finn (3) and Evie (1) have such different skills and interests, I try to think of activities that they can do happily together. Water, sand have always good, but I've discovered a bag of uncooked rice brought some lovely learning experiences for them.

I set them outside on the deck on a plastic mat, and gave them a variety of implements to scoop, sift and move the rice with. Finn loved moving piles of rice with his little dump trucks, and Evie loved pouring and touching and rolling around in the rice grains.
