On Saturday when I was baking up a storm, I was also entertaining Ridley who can run circles around me all day long. Where do two year olds get all their energy??
Ridley loves “doing dishes” or playing in the water, so I thought he might enjoy playing with some rice.
I gathered a pan, cups, measuring cups and plastic lids along with a bag of rice.
I’ve never seen Ridley stay in one place for such a long time. He entertained himself by moving the rice around, pouring, spilling, transferring, pouring over and over again.
I love his concentration. Such a sweet little man.
What you don’t see in these pictures…is when he took a handful and threw it on the floor. I wasn’t upset because, I’m sure I probably would’ve done the same thing when I was two as well.
Sweeping up rice is super easy too.
Ridley loved playing with rice and I’m sure that we will do this again soon!
