Look what fun can be had with an inner tube and a bunch of dried rice and beans. We put this in our office so that our clients could benefit from the bouncing and pressure of the tube while lying in prone and searching for items that we hid inside. The toddlers love sitting on the edge of the tube (with support) and bouncing lightly while singing songs and feeling their feet in the rice mixture. In a recent social group we sat around the tube as if we were at a campfire and told stories, and sang songs while using the tube as our “drum”. What an awesome sensory/language combination!!
