Rice makes a great sensory material for children.
It is less messy than sand, it makes a fun sound when poured, and it can be stored and used again & again.  It is also very easy to color and scent.  Read on to see how we made play rice that captures all the beautiful colors and alluring aromas of Fall.

Fall Scented Rice Play Recipes 
We made 5 varieties of rice, each one with a different scent. 

We used:
Method
  • Begin by filling a zip-seal bag with the desired amount of rice, using one bag for each rice variety that you wish to make.
  • We used roughly 1 cup of rice per bag/variety.
  • Add several drops of food coloring to each bag along with a bit of the desired aroma.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of water to each bag.
  • Then, seal them tightly and let the kids mix them up.  My girls love shaking and mixing the bags.
  • Continue shaking/mixing until the rice is fully saturated in color.

  • Then, open the bags and leave the rice to dry.
  • Drying will take roughly 2-4 hours.
  • Once the rice is dry pour it into a sensory bin or container and play can begin!
