Rainbow Rice

Rainbow Rice is one of my great finds on Pinterest. I saw this project and I knew we were going to have to do it. I had no idea how much better the rice would look in person! Plus Zane loved doing this!

Step 1: Mix some food color with 1T Rubbing alcohol.

Step 2: Add Rice

Step 3: Mix rice so colored evenly

Step 4: Lay rice out on cookie sheet (FYI it is pretty stinky)

Step 5: Once dry dump all the colors together (we had two cookie sheets of colors)

Step 6: Mix the colors

Now you have Rainbow Rice.

You can do lots of fun things with this, owe will be using it for a project for letter I (hint hint).

I also realized that this could be used for adult crafts too. It would be great for in a vase with flower (probably fake ones). Use the rice to stick your cake pops into and prop them up or hide the Styrofoam that is propping them up.

Any other ideas for uses for this fun and lovely rice?
