If you are visiting from fox 9, welcome! This morning I shared a bunch of back to school projects... this rainbow rice is one of them. I made it to use in a sensory table with my preschoolers, but it would be so cute to use in glass vases as a centerpiece.
To make the rice, you mix together 4 cups of rice, 2 tbs of food coloring and 3 tbs of rubbing alcohol. Mix it in a large ziplock bag and put it in pans to dry out.
Allow the rice to dry for a few hours...
the colors are so vibrant!!
I packed it up in ziplock bags and brought it to school.
It looked beautiful in my sensory table. Look at all the fun little things we added to it. My little 3 year olds are going to love digging around in there.
We made a rainbow out of plastic tablecloths cut into strips and hung on a clothesline...
A flock of rainbow owls have been cut out of felt.
We are ready to learn! I hope you will join me for more back to school ideas next week!
