Confetti Cards and Sensory Box

These couple of ideas were inspired by my dad's wedding back in September.  We made some cards with coloured rice, plain rice and confetti.  I sprayed the cards with spray craft adhesive and then the boys just sprinkled the decorations where they wanted. (The rice is made by mixing dried rice with either food colouring or poster paints and leaving to dry.  Some colours WILL come off on hands!!!)

They seemed to really like the sprinkling so I thought I'd just put the rest in their sensory box for a week or so to play with.  They've enjoyed the coloured rice for a long time but the confetti added an extra dimension and it led to some really good communication with lots of requests for more dramatic sprinkling!
