I hid a few letter magnets in this colored rice for N (28 Months) to find. I used four letters that are in her name. I wrote the letters on a piece of paper and put it next to the bowl.
When she found a letter she'd say the name of the letter and match it to the letter on the paper.
Then she stamped the letter with a dot painter. She did this activity a couple of times and had a lot of fun with it.
And then she decided to have fun scooping and pouring the rice.
When you find the letter say the sound it makes.
Hide uppercase and lowercase letters in the rice to find and match.
Hide different colored objects and match them to the same colored paper.
