Toddlers can learn a lot from getting their hands dirty - A great tactile experience.
This activity will also help create some colorful memories and refine their fine motor skills.
Ways to adapt:
Place in one big bowl or separate bowls.
Add tools for them to scoop and sort.
Add additional objects to color match.
Add the oats to a water bottle and create a rainbow shaker
As these are edible why not create rainbow oats for breakfast - great for fuzzy eaters. (I brought honey oats to add to the taste) The oats can also be backed and make funny yummy snacks.
