How to Make a Transportation Theme Sensory Bin
See the simple process below!
Pour the rice into the zip bag, add as much or as little paint as you would like, and then have your helpers gently mush it all around to spread the color, if desired, add more paint, just make sure the rice doesn’t become wet and oversaturated.
During that time you can collect your other supplies for the bin. Make certain to let the kids help!
When the rice is ready you can invite your children to come to help build a park for their Lego friends.
Let them continue to add in whatever items that they want to create a cool place to play.
Their imagination is going to go wild over this!
