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
- Distilled Vinegar
- 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. vinegar 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 vinegar is very strong and I placed my baking sheets outside.
