With Valentine’s Day only a short time away I thought a Valentine’s inspired sensory tray was in order.
I made lavender rice using the purple dye in the pack below – I struggled making it by mixing red and blue from other brands but this one was beautiful.
I also made bright pink because pink and purple look great together.
Once the rice was ready we headed outside to collect rose petals (my son’s favourite part of the whole experience).
Next we popped the rice and petals into a heart themed serving tray found at a local cheap shop.
We explored this for a short while before adding more tools:
– a cardboard tube, a scoop, a heart shaped cutter and an antique metal straining spoon (given to me by my Nana).
A simple, easily adaptable Valentine’s day rice sensory experience!
