Isaiah loves using rice for sensory play. It’s one of his absolute favorites. He enjoys scooping and pouring, but he especially loves having special toys to play with in the rice. Tonight, I pulled out a set of cats for him. He played with the cats, buried the cats and dug them out. He said they were playing “hide and seek”. Adding something new and different can help keep him entertained for longer periods of time.
I’ve found lots of different sets at Dollar Tree to help build our sensory collections. The great thing about getting them from Dollar Tree is that they’re fairly easy to replace when the various sensory activities eventually damage them. Isaiah has a set of little cars, various animal sets and lots of scoops and buckets.
