Sensory Activity for Infants: DIY Rice Tube Rainmaker

Here’s a simple craft you can make for your baby with items lying around your kitchen.

What You’ll Need

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own rainmaker!

  • Uncooked rice or small uncooked pasta
  • A clear plastic tube (I used a pretzel container)
  • Food dye
  • Paper plates or Ziploc bags
  • Stickers

Putting it all together

  • Remove the label by soaking the jar in water
  • Add uncooked rice or pasta to a plastic bag and add desired amount of food dye
  • Pour the rice into the container
  • Apply stickers

And that’s it! It comes together in just a few minutes.

Recommendations

  • I would have used Ziploc bags instead of paper plates.
  • The glue doesn’t entirely come off – if you know how to get this off let me know!

Have you made your own baby toys? How do you keep your little one entertained?
