Royal Rice

Given that our country is celebrating the birth of the Royal Prince this week, I introduced a patriotic theme into our messy play. I presented the children with red, white and blue rice together with some patriotic cups and spoons depicting the colours of the Union Jack. 

We briefly talked about the colours of the Union Jack and the birth of the prince and the children then set to work! They used the spoons and cups to release their imagination with one child using the cake cases to construct a tent and another pretending they were making milkshakes. 

This sensory play encouraged awareness of volumes and measures as well as ensuring children used their senses and develop their fine motor skills through the use of tools.
