Eye Spy Jar

I just finished making colored rice and noodles. I knew L would love playing with it and so I used it as a sensory bin activity. He had a blast! See COLORED RICE AND NOODLES for directions! However, my original purpose for making colored rice and noodles was to make an Eye Spy Jar. I originally saw this post on a wonderful blog called The Magic Onions. There's was very simple and used no colored rice, but I had been wanting to make colored rice and noodles for a while anyway so I thought I could combine the two projects.

These were the two white rice jars I made. One for a boy and one for a girl. Each jar contains many different objects hidden within the rice and noodles. I also printed a picture of all the objects within each jar and used Scotch Self Sealing Laminating Pouches (no heat or machine needed) to laminate them. I attached them to the jar with a ribbon. 

I like the jar idea (pretty for sure) but I'll also be saving a water bottle or two to do a few more for safter handling (non breakable) and a great way to REUSE the bottle!

  1. This is really cool. Do they dump the stuff out to find them or do they just look through the glass.

  2. They look through the glass. Everything stays inside forever.
