Rainbow Rice

I can’t take credit for this…..but, I loved the idea so much I wanted to share…..

This link was sent to me by a friend…………..


To dye your rice, pour about two cups of rice into a bowl; add about 20-25 drops of food coloring and stir it until it is coated. Then add 1/2 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol and stir again. Repeat, with various colors; pour onto newspaper until it dries and then dump all of it into a container to create a rainbow rice bin. You can use this bin for games or simply for fun play using funnels, cars, cups, large spoons, etc.

Get Creative…

  • Magnetic alphabet letters can be hidden in the rice and can be matched to corresponding letters on a cookie sheet.

  • Paint rocks or shells that can be matched to corresponding colors painted in the bottom of an egg shell carton.

  • Hide coins and sort into matching piles, talk about values.
