We made Rainbow Rice and I tried to extend this as much as possible,
as you only get 1 shot at mixing the colours together.
To make: get some cheap long grain rice.
Put some in a sandwich bag ( or 2 if they are thin bags like mine), with several drops of food colouring,
and a few squirts of hand sanitizer. Make sure it says alcohol in the ingredients.
Shake and leave to dry.
First we used a big tray.
I made a big paper cone for Big Seed to play with.
He used it to put the rice on the tray; he liked the feel of it falling through his fingers.
Then he swooshed it around with his hands.
He used a funnel for the next colour.
Then we transferred the rice to a big tub.
This is the one we used for our Sand and Autumn Sensory Box.
Here he is scooping the green rice with a spoon into the box.
Now pouring with a scoop into a bowl.
