Explore autumn in a sensory way with this fun, themed activity!

Before You Begin:

Fill a large, clear bin with colored rice. Hide different autumnal items in the rice for the children to find. Make colored rice by placing a few cups of rice in a large resealable bag. Drop a few drops of orange food coloring in to the bag, seal the bag, and then squish and shake the rice around so that it is coated with the food coloring. Allow to dry. Do the same thing with another bag and yellow food coloring.
