Dyed Craft Rice
Recipe from

-- Kids love squeezing glue onto construction paper and then pouring colored rice over the glue to make patterns with texture.

-- Add to your collage box as another collage medium.

--Pour different colors of rice into bottles (as with sand art) -- pretty!

-- Teach your little ones their letters
by writing in glue on paper and letting them sprinkle or press the colored rice on top.
After it dries, they can trace the letter with their
finger tip.

You’ll need :

Uncooked white rice
Food color

Place 1/2 cup rice into a bowl. Add ~ 5 drops
of coloring and 1/2 tsp. vinegar
to set the color. Spread flat onto a baking sheet.
Bake at 200 for 45 min to dry.

You may wish to make more colors at the same time.
Be sure to keep them separate when baking.
After they dry, they can be packed together.
