Shapes in Rice

Sensorial-drawing shapes in a rice tray

This one is pretty simple and a lot of us do it. I used rice instead of sand as I find it easier to clean and not be wasted, cause I can always pick it up and feed it to the birds. A lesson on taking care of Allah's creatures and not wasting follows suit. Alhumdolillah!

Also it is an excellent way to get Lil Muallimah or Lil Muallim # 2 to clean up. They use these cute little child size broom and dust pan we bought in pack of CLEANING toys by kidconnection at Walmart! :)

Yesterday was the first time I introduced this and the other rice activity above to her and she and Lil Muallim # 2 kept coming back to it all day. (yes we did have to clean up some of the rice from the floor a a couple of times but they enjoyed a LOT Alhumdolillah) I had to literally tear her away from it at night.

Here are some shapes Lil Maullimah made in it.......Lil Muallim # 2 taughter her to make the heart by day 2 she was making beautiful ones. Mashallah!

Shemi-circle :)


I taught her to level the rice by gently moving her hand over the shape and the slightly shaking the tray holding its.

This activity can be done in sand, salt or any other grainy material of your choice. :)
