Rainbow Rice

It's so pretty
 I wanted something that was okay for Eli ( 14 month) to be able to play with that felt hard but was also safe for him if he put it into his mouth. So we made Rainbow rice it's a great way for us to go over stuff that's hard and to be able to go over his colors.










                                                                What you will need.

Rubbing Alcohol or vinegar ( I used vinegar)
Uncooked white rice 
Food coloring
Plastic baggies or just a bowl ( I used plastic baggies )



So for the first step I got everything together.
I used 1/4 cup for rice and 1 TSP for Vinegar





























We added 1 TSP of Vinegar and then added some food coloring to it about 5-6 drops 


After that we put in 1/4 cup of rice and make sure to get all of the air out of the bag and close it. Then Mix it
So I had pics of Eli mixing it put for some reason my cam deleted it :( I'm upset about it too.

To mix it just move the rice around the bag really shake it up till all the rice looks colored


And now we wait and let it sit and soak up the color for a few hours . (I left mine over night )


Then lay the rice out on a cookie sheet or glass plate to dry for a few hours.. I had mine in the sun fr around 2 hrs and it was dry.


All done.

I'll be using the rice in a Sensory Bin for Eli to play in.

I post with everything we use to rice for.

This is a super easy , cheap , and fun thing to do with kids of any age.

If you've ever made colored rice let me know how you did it and how it turned out. :)

Have a wonderful day

You can see where I got the idea from here
