Sensory Bin Inspired by The Wizard of Oz

After reading this DIY scented rice post from Growing A Jeweled Rose, I knew I wanted to try it. I found some Pina-Pineapple Kool-Aid mix on clearance and it was the perfect shade for making a rice Yellow Brick Road!

While it’s tropical scent probably didn’t smell much like Oz (although it smelled delicious), I thought it looked pretty good.


I added some sparkly cardboard flowers in pink for poppies and green for the Emerald City. I also added a basket for Dorothy as well as a Lion, Tiger and Bear.

Oh My!

  Luke dove right in and mixed it up immediately. That’s part of the fun, of course!

Mmm – Pineapples!


He made a rice house for the animals, and then bulldozed it with this hands. And then he started tossing rice, so that was the end of that :). Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
