Kids Crafts; How to Make Rainbow Rice
Want a fun cool craft to do with your kiddos? Well this one is great for your kids and is fun for sensory bins. You can use the rice to play with and decorate, I like to let my nieces and nephews fill up water bottles with the rainbow rice and they have fun doing it. The most fun about the rainbow rice I think is making it, you get to see the pretty colors and make cool designs with it. Keep reading for directions and what you need to make this cool colorful craft!
First you will want to fill each bag with 3 cups of the uncooked rice, 2 tablespoons of food coloring (mix and match to make your favorite colors) and 3 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol, then zip up your baggies and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! Make sure your baggie is zipped up tightly and shake as much as you can to make sure all rice is covered! After that put all of the baggies into seperate pans and set outside to dry. Don't let the kids touch until completely dry, should be about an hour to let all ingredients set in. Then your kids can play with it, put it in bottles and get a kabob stick and make designs in the jar. It will be alot of fun and you get to play with your colorful decorations, the kids will be amused at how the rice changed colors.
What you need:)
Large ziploc baggies
