Sugar and rice, and all things nice

Before you think you need to spend lots of money on expensive toys to keep the kids entertained this summer, behold the toddler who spends an hour entertaining himself with some rice. And be fair!

The biggest expense in this experiment was, in fact, the Little Helper Funpod that facilitated the simple exercise of pouring rice from one bowl to another, mixing it with sugar, oats, dry pasta and what other dry ingredients I could find to throw at the seemingly easily-pleased nearly 3 year old. Not literally throw of course. There was enough airbourne food already to contend with with the cascade of oats spilling out between pours. It was fairly messy business, there’s no denying, but for the time that it allowed me to wash up and cook dinner, the mess was a small price to pay.
