Rainbow Rice

8 Apr

To make you need: plain cheap white rice, food coloring and either hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol.

A couple of weeks ago we were really needing a fun rainy day activity at our house so we dyed some white rice.  It was so easy and so fun! 

Place some rice in a plastic bag, a squirt of sanitizer and about half a bottle of food coloring.

Squish together to spread the color. This is really fun! 😉

To make even brighter colored rice purchase "neon" food coloring. We haven't tried that neon food coloring yet but plan to next week!

The little boy I watch who is 3 had a great time spooning rice into an old Parmesan Cheese container. It was also great practice for his motor skills.

 I was so surprised by how well this went over.  We have gotten it out over and over again to play with.  I also made an Ocean Sensory box with the blue rice.  A great activity to try with the kids in your life.  Eli was a little young for this activity but had fun watching.  🙂
