Rice Box Wonders

Since I’m continuing to “play” stay-at-home-mom for the next week, I needed some ideas to keep the kids entertained. A big Thank You to Goddess for the Rice Box idea!!

I got a $5 bag of rice from Costco and filled two separate boxes with rice. (Yes, we are at the stage where it’s much less stress/mess/yelling/fighting/etc. with separate things.) Pulled out some various sized cups and bowls, a spoon or two…and the kids are having a blast!

Is it bad that I told them that there may be something hidden in all that rice…?

P.S. The sheets with the half fitted top sheet that I got for the kids are from Walmart:

  1. How fun! I just filled our sand & water table with moon sand to deal with the boredom…LOL

  2. Great idea -thanks!

  3. Rice WOULD be fun…much better than sand I would think.
    and you can make some nice Kung Pao Chicken after.

  4. Hmmm….I must get me some rice for today. It’s only 11:00 and the kids are already driving me nuts.

    Do they spill it everywhere though? I worry about Cakes. You know how she is.
