First, I put 3 cups of white rice in each ziploc bag.
Then, the girls took turns choosing a color of food coloring and then squeezing the coloring into the bag of rice. We added 4 tsp of rubbing alcohol, sealed the bag, and they squished and squeezed and shook the bags until the rice was completely covered in color!
Here are our bags of beautiful rice!
I poured the rice from each bag out onto packing paper to dry. We let it dry for about 5 hours before pouring it into the rice pit.
Here it is right after I poured it into the rice pit...it looks so pretty!
It didn't take long for my little monkeys to mix it together completely! They LOVE the rainbow rice!
