Snow Rice Sensory Play

We have our fingers crossed for massive snowfall this Winter. While we wait in anticipation and hope for the best, I have been concocting and creating Winter play recipes for Rosie and Jewel to enjoy until they can get their hands in the real thing. This icy cold shiver rice was a lot of fun!

This snow rice was easy to create and oh so fun for the kids!
Shivery Snow Rice Materials: (affiliate links provided) Begin by placing the desired amount of rice in a zip seal bag and popping it in the freezer overnight. The next day your rice will be delightfully COLD. Frozen rice really feels AMAZING! Just before playtime pull the rice from the freezer, open the bag, and add a few drops of peppermint extract. Seal the bag and shake it up a bit. Then pour the rice into a sensory bin or container. Sprinkle in glitter and add whatever other wintry items you desire

Shiver rice really feels delightful. Play began in a sensory bin but soon spread to the table top so that the girls could drive around in and plow the snow

Jewel loved filling her dump truck with snow and then dumping it out

The girls played and played, making snow mountains, pouring, dumping, and simply enjoying the chilly feel of their shivery snow rice.
Rice is one of my favorite indoor sensory materials. It vacuums up easily which equates to easy clean up for mom. Once play time was over I put our shiver rice back in the freezer for future play.
