DIY Coloured Rice for Kids
Rice can be used in so many ways for arts & crafts. It’s also a great sensory activity for kids. They love the texture and letting it slide in between their fingers. I have dyed pasta before, which you can see here. So I thought I would try my hand at dying rice. It’s vey easy, inexpensive and most of all FUN!
All you need is: (per colour)
1 cup of white rice
1/4 cup white vinegar
Add the rice to a zip lock bag.
Add 1/4 cup of Vinegar & a few drops of food colouring to the rice.
Zip the bag tightly shut & squish & squelch until all of the colour is combined evenly.
Pour your coloured rice out onto a tray lined with Baking Paper and let it dry for an hour or two…now here’s where even more FUN starts..
We love to pour our rice into sensory tubs and play with shovels, spades & our hands.
This time, we added the different coloured rice to a funky bottle for that ‘coloured sand’ look!
We hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
