Colored Rice for Fun Sensory Play!

My kids love to play with colored rice, especially on a rainy day like today. It makes for the perfect indoor "sandbox!" It is a great filler for Sensory Tub too!
The best part is, it is super easy to make!
All you need is food coloring or acrylic paint and rubbing alcohol. Put your rice in a gallon size Ziploc bag and add equal parts of paint or food coloring. Close the bag and mix it all up. Add more paint/food coloring and alcohol until you achieve the color desired. Dump the rice onto a baking sheet and let it air dry.
My son loves to play with it in his sensory tubs, but his favorite way to play with it is in a container with his men! He loves to pretend that the rice is quick sand and bury his men in it!
