My first project was making new colored rice.  I LOVE sensory bins for the classroom. My last batch lasted a LONG time but it was time to make some new rice! My son could not wait to get his hands in it! If you want to read more about how to make it or grab the direction sheet you can read about it on this blog post:

One fun classroom idea
is "Brain Sprinkles."  I saw the pin on Pinterest by Mrs Nichol's Corner but the pin did not land on a working blog.

Here is our version of "Brain Sprinkles":

I used colored rice, sprinkle jar from the Dollar Tree, confetti stars, hot glue, and leftover clear laminating film.

First, I scooped the colored rice into the jar.  I mixed the confetti stars in with the rice.

Next, I hot glued the laminating film inside the top of the lid to cover the holes.

After that, I created a label and attached it to the jar using hot glue.

  2. How funny with the sprinkles! I thought, wouldn't this make a mess?? But I realized you tape the holes shut and the kids simply think you're sprinkling it on them. How cute!
