- Construction paper in a variety of colors
- Uncooked rice
- White Glue
Cut out a variety of shapes for toddler or have preschoolers cut out shapes that you draw or print onto the construction paper. Have the children glue each shape onto a background paper. Then, add glue to the shape in a spiral following the shape (as pictured). Or, have your preschooler do this. Then, have the children sprinkle the rice onto the glue. Shake off the excess and allow to dry.
It is interesting to see how children react to the rice and glue. In our small sample, Grayson has the most reactions to sensory experiences which can be seen in the photo. This activity is great for learning shapes and is a a wonderful activity for sensory input.
