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!
My daughters love colored rice! This was a lovely reminder to pull out our rice buckets again.
Can you believe I just learned about this?! Especially nice for us since my son can’t touch gluten due to an intense skin allergy — so a lot of the tactile “at home” fun is off limits.
