Rainbow Rice

I have dyed noodles for necklaces but never rice. So today I did! It was the same process as noodles....
Rainbow Rice
In a ziplock bag put some rice and food coloring (I used Neon the colors turned out awesome!) then a splash of rubbing alchohol. Then SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE.
I poured the rice out onto paper towel lined cookie sheets and let dry. Once they are COMPLETELY dry put it in a sensory table and play.

My plan is to use this as part of Daily 5 and put sight word cards in the rice and the children can hunt for either a specific word or find all the words they can. I will probably either make worksheets or have the children write the words they find. So easy but a fun way to "spice up" sight word practice.

rainbow rice (much less messy replacement for sand) measure out the rice (4 cups) and put it in a Ziploc bag with about 2T of food coloring or liquid water colors (works great!) and 3 T of rubbing alcohol. The kids can  help mix the rice in the bags to spread the color. put them on pans to dry in the sun. Dries incredibly fast. Can color pasta the same way!
