Make Your Own sensory box

This was my oldest daughter's idea and she made it herself.  She is very independent and motivated when it comes to getting projects done.

She simply opened a can of rice.  We keep a lot around because she can't have wheat and we follow the practice of Food Storage.

She covered a Costco box from a recent shopping trip, with duct tape.  Imagine that, huh?  :)

The texture of the grain between your fingers is relaxing, and she has really enjoyed it.  This would be a great FREE craft to make for toddlers to use as long as they were well supervised :).


  1. I've been meaning to do this for my own kids for like a year now. Tell her thanks for the tutorial and inspiration! ;)

  2. What a great idea! I'm going to have to give this a try soon.

  3. Great idea!
    We do the same with sand (a little messier)..
