We have been having lots of fun adding sound to playtimes by using Pop Rocks. So far we have made a sound volcano, popping GOOP, and crackle foam. Along this same thinking, today I set up a simple POPPING playtime using a different material. This activity was especially perfect for baby Jewel.
Popping Sensory Play
Jewel began by exploring the popping rice by itself
Even dry this is an amazing sensory material
Painting the popping rice with colored water is also lots of fun and makes for quite a unique canvas
I mean a canvas with sound is just too cool, right?
The biggest fun of all is when you add water play to the mix
As kids add the popping rice to the water it makes cool sound effects as it fizzles between tiny fingers
Such fabulous sensory fun!
This play time was so fun for Jewel and so simple. You have probably figured out by now what we used to make this popping rice sensory playtime. It's Rice Krispies- that's it! A small box of cereal, a bowl of water, a spray bottle of colored water.....and TONS of fabulous fun and exploration!
