9/6/11 - Ocean Sensory Tub

I read all sorts of blogs that give all sorts of great ideas for childhood play.  This is my adaptation of one of those ideas.  The idea was for a sensory tub made of rainbow rice.  Basically you just color the rice with food coloring and the kids play with it with scoops and stuff.  I thought an ocean tub would be fun so I colored a ton of rice blue and put that in a tub with several of Nathan's water themed toys and let Nathan play away.  The hardest part of the project is not cringing every time a grain of rice ends up on the floor.  To lessen the cringing effect, I put down a table cloth so cleanup would be easier.

He seemed to enjoy it.
