Colored rice is so fun to use in kids crafts and activities. It’s easy to make and fun to use. Here’s how we made our own.
What you need:
- White Rice
- Food coloring
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Zip lock bags
- baking sheets
Separate the rice into ziplock bags. How many colors you make will determine how many bags you need. Place 3 cups of rice into each bag. Add 1/2 tsp. food coloring and 2 tbsp. rubbing alcohol to the rice. Seal bags and shake until rice is evenly coated.
Line baking sheets with foil and spread colored rice out onto the sheets. Air Dry for about 4 hours.
Tip: the smell of alcohol is very strong and I placed my baking sheets outside.
