Rice, Rice, Baby

With Maisy in school some mornings and Maren's morning nap now a distant memory, I needed to start giving Maren, now a year and a half, some activities of her own.

So rice play it was.  I just spread out a big sheet, gave her spoons, different sized bowls a strainer and some treasures to find in the rice.

She had a great time scooping, pouring and dumping.

She eventually poured out all the rice and just have herself a little foot bath.

This kept her quite occupied for at least 30 minutes while I was able to get a free half hour! Yippee.  After about a half hour she started flinging the rice around and I decided that the activity was over.  Clean up was pretty easy, all the rice/beans left on the sheet went back into our rice container, all the stuff on the floor got swiffered and dust busted up!
