Rainbow rice made easier

This year we’ve decided to make all our gifts ourself. earlier we made a velcro sticks busy bag and babylegs. today Maximan choose rainbow rice as a birthday gift for one of his friends. He enjoys his own rainbow rice so much, he wants to share this fun with his friend.

Since the last time it actually was a lot of work, I came up with another way to color the rice. My intention was to make 4 different colors of rice, blue, green, yellow and red.

Needed:

I divided the rice into the 4 zipbags. I put 2 cups of rice in each bag. I added 1/4 cup of water and 3-6 drops of food coloring. Maximan made sure that the food coloring in each bag colored the rice evenly. Now, the rice only needs to dry and then we can finish our present.

Finishing the present

For this gift we got a plastic underbed box, that is not that high. So you can have good access and lots of fun while playing. Again, we added gloves, a glass jar an some sandbox toys.
