I love sensory bins!!! Now that my little boy is a lot more curious and wanting to explore new things I have decided I wanted to make him some sensory bins for him play in, learn and discover new things. (Watch for a future post on my sensory bin that I made!)
I saw some cute ideas on Pinterest on how to start sensory bins. Well I found one that had colored rice and I new right away that I wanted to make some colored rice. Even though my son is 17 months old and he doesn’t know his colors but I still thought it was a fun way to bring some color into his bins.
Colored rice is simple to make and you probably have everything in your in home.
Not only will your kids have fun playing around in the pretty rice but I did to! It was fun to swirl around, run through my fingers and simply just playing around.
- 3 cups rice
- 2 tsp Rubbing alcohol
- ½ tsp food coloring
- Ziploc bag
- Cookie Sheet
- Place rice in a gallon Ziploc bag. In a small bowl add rubbing alcohol and food coloring and give it a nice stir. Pour liquid in bag and shake shake shake! Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or simply just pour rice on cookie sheet and let dry for 4 hours.
