Coloured Rice Math Game

Materials: rice, food colouring, a spoon of vinegar, ½ lemon or lemon juice, a deep tray, kitchen tweezers (from IKEA kids), foam or cardboard letters/numbers

Age: any.

Instructions: Put a spoon of vinegar, the amount of food colouring you want and then the rice. The vinegar will help keep the rice more colourful.

You can use the sensory tray for games. Today we played a math game with it. It goes like this: the child takes two numbers using kitchen tweezers, and then he has to calculate their sum. We used the Addition machine to get the correct result. Crazy fun! Too bad it takes a little bit too long: it’s more suitable for small groups (max. 5 kids).
