8. Colored rice is a great sensory material to play with. Look at this Earth Day sensory bin from Fun-a-Day. You can add plastic eggs and pastel pom poms for an Easter themed bin or twigs, flowers, pebbles, and plastic insects or chicks from the dollar store for a spring bin. Another idea is to simply have a big tub of rice with scoops, spoons, and cups.

Paint the heart-shaped Earth with green and blue paints and allow to dry. Glue hands to the back of the heart and fold the fingers around front so that it looks like the hands are holding the heart.
