Scented Rice Sensory Bin Tutorial


While pretending Jacob and his friends are playing in the school yard, your child will receive sensory input through touch and smell! Try making your own scented rice sensory bin for your home or classroom today.

Here's what you will need:

  • Long Grain White Rice
  • Food Coloring
  • Essential Oil
  • Distilled Vinegar
  • Baking Sheet
  • Spoon
  • Gallon Sized Ziplock Bag
  • Large Bin with Lid



Developmental and therapeutic support provided through this bin:

  • Hand/Eye Coordination (Digging for and burying dinosaurs, scooping and dumping rice)
  • Tactile Input (Feeling and holding rice in hands)
  • Fine Motor Skills (Collecting Marbles, organizing dinosaurs)
  • Imaginative Play (Pretending and acting out the dinosaurs at recess!)
