Rice. Who knew right?
Boo cannot spend more than ten minutes on one activity before she loses interest and moves onto something else, leaving behind a trail of devastation behind her. So yesterday Boo finds my 20 lb bag of rice. Okay, I’m not into massive bulk buying ala the cabbage, the rice is for a project. So I tell her I will put some in a tub for her to play with. Imagining her sifting it through her hands, hiding and finding her toys. Hmmm, let’s see.
Turns out Boo Boo wanted to get in the box and bury her hands and toes. These are the before shots, I will spare you when she ran into the bathroom and back and jumped in completely NUDE. Quickly, I assured her it would be best to keep her panties on. Rice in those areas, uhh, no. So, I cleaned and she played and played and played, for almost TWO HOURS. TWO HOURS. A record for sweet Boo. Rice in the belly button…definitely a winner. Rice down her panties, oh yeah. Rice in her hair, for sure. Mess on the dining room floor, uh huh. But it all swept up in five minutes and she smelled all nice and grainy the rest of the day. You might remember this post I did, Simplicity of Play. Tell me now we need expensive fancy toys.
Santa could bring a 20 pound bag of rice. Imagine that!
Speaking of rice, have you visited Freerice.com.
Go over and play when you have a minute.
