A photo on Friday, because sometimes all you need is the picture!
Today I thought I would share a picture of some freshly dyed rainbow rice. I have been making rainbow rice for about 8 years now, and I must say – I’ve got it down to a fine science. As in, I have found the most simple way to make it awesomely.
Pop some dry rice into baggies. Add a splash of rubbing alcohol (about a teaspoon) and a few drops of food colouring. Zip up the bag, shake, shake, shake, and pour on a plate to dry for an hour. Done!
Rainbow rice is great for crafting, and perfect to use in a water table – instead of the water, of course. Or throw it in a big bin out in the backyard to dig and play with. Lots to be learned with scooping, pouring, measuring, and mixing!
Happy Friday friends! Have a lovely weekend. Be sure to visit Monday when I share some “learn to read” Quiet Bins!
