We’ve been having a lot of fun playing with the dyed rice I made a few weeks ago. When I first made it Rosalie kept wanting to eat it so I just put some in a bottle to make a shaker, but when I tried again on Friday she seemed keen to explore the texture.
At first I simply had the box of rice on a tray, but this didn’t really contain the rice fallout. So I dug a large plastic storage box out of the cupboard and sat Rosalie and the box of rice inside that. This did the trick!
Along with the coloured rice, in the box I included a small scoop, a baby fork and a little pot, so that she could scoop and pour. She mostly enjoyed feeling the rice run through her fingers and the sound of the grains against the plastic.
We also talked about the different colours, which she was probably too small to understand or appreciate!
