What guided your decision to use rice instead of sand? Is it different (better) sensory input or is it for ease of cleaning? My mother bought my children a water/sand table and I haven't filled it yet. After seeing your post, I'm considering rice. Any thoughts?
O has a sand box, but I like the rice better. Its easier to clean up, and it doesn't stick to her the way sand does. Its definitely a better choice if you are planning on having it in your house or on a porch. However,we do love our sandbox, too. Hope that helps!
Rice Pitt???!!! You have no idea how much I LOVE this idea!!
