Preschool Montessori Activity: Playing with Rice Extension

Since introducing the Rice Activity, Little Bear has requested to play with the Rice box daily.  One thing I offered him recently was a tray of rice.  It started out that he wanted to play with his cars on a thin layer of rice.  But then he began to discover (his own discovery) that he could "draw" with his finger.  So, he started making shapes.

Later, he requested that I help him draw letters in the rice.

He enjoyed both watching me draw the letters and tracing them afterwards.  He then found my letters to be a good "racetrack" for his matchbox cars.  (Notice the broom nearby.  When the rice is out, so is the broom!)
