Fairy Tale Sensory Tub

When the magical month of May begins, so does our unit on fairy tales! A new unit means a new sensory tub. Once again the students participated in making the sensory tub filler. This time, we took a 50-pound bag of rice and had fun making magical fairy tale rice! Here’s how:

First, each student measured four cups of rice into a large Ziploc baggie.

The students added an orange scented essential oil….we have to make the rice smell amazing after all!

Next up was color! Students chose from turquoise, purple, or fuchsia liquid watercolor to add to the rice.

Then it was time to shake, shake shake!

Look at those bright colors!

Time to play!
