We love sensory bins here! They are a crucial part of me keeping my sanity intact during the winter, rainy days, and hot, hot summer days. This week, with temps above 100, I haven't been able to take the kids outside and still need to keep them busy. Enter the Kool Aid colored rice sensory bin. I colored this rice several months ago and it still smells amazingly fruity, has good color (I was told the colors would wear off), and provides entertainment for the kiddies.
