Toddlers learn best through ‘hands-on’ experiences. Rice play is an easy activity to set-up that gets toddlers using all their senses. and a way to playfully develop the fine-motor skills required for writing i.e. picking up tiny grains, passing handfuls from hand to hand, or scooping and pouring.
It can also work on language skills….describe what you are doing as you play with the rice e.g. “pouring”, “scooping”, “finding”. Keep your comments short and then wait for your toddler to say or do something next.
This will be a fun time where your child(ren) can have fun with you and peers and build important developmental skills!
