Colored rice sensory work

We have many students who are still working to learn their colors. One way we facilitate color practice is in our sensory bin. This month our color of focus is yellow. Last week we made yellow rice. The directions are the same as dying beans.

We put different "hidden items" in the rice each week. Last week we were studying the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We hid some yellow plastic bears in the rice for the kids to discover. This week we are working with the 5 senses, so we hid so giant googly eyes in the rice.

Other ideas:
-plastic letters/numbers
-small animal toys
-colored wooden beads
-small plastic people figures
-small cars

Anything small! The kids love to dig out the hidden items and then re-hide them!
