We've had a small rice box that my kids have used for playing in, finding little things in with tongs, pouring and measuring. But, with two playing I wanted a bigger box and more rice. And why not make it colorful? When I saw this rainbow rice on Pink and Green Mama's blog I knew it was for us.
I used the same technique I used on our colored pasta.
We put the rice in gallon sized ziplock bags with rubbing alcohol and food coloring.
Here it is drying out on the table. I LOVE the colors.
It looked like this for about thirty seconds.
He couldn't wait to mix it up.
And I still love it. And, more importantly, they love it.
