How to color rice for sensory time

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

Coloring rice is easy-peasy.  Put your rice in a bowl, dump some hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol (a little goes a long way) and put a couple drops of food coloring in.  Mix until you have your desired color!


Let dry for an hour or so (just to be safe!) and make a cute sensory bin!  No need to be fancy.  Just add some cups, funnels, spoons, etc, and let your child explore the fun texture!
