Autumnal mix - Supporting fine motor control with rice

Just a quick post really but now Autumn has officially arrived (did you have an equally washed out cold weekend?) its time we started to bring out more of the abundant colours that autumn has to offer.

In the black tray this morning I added coloured rice to the tray in circles using the colours above.  (Coloured rice is just plain rice mixed with poster or any water based paints and leaving to dry - don't add too much colour). 
I also added some leaves to the tray for the children to compare the colours to those which they see outside from our tree.

Obviously a great fine motor activity to engage those little fingers filling tray and pots using spoons and tweezers.
