Jumping in Feet First
white rice (as much as you'd like to have)
cookie sheets or trays for drying
Scoop a cup of rice into a baggie.
Mix 1 tsp rubbing alcohol with food colouring.
Pour coloured rubbing alcohol into baggie. Seal, squishing out air.
Mush (yep, that's the technical term) the colour in. Fun for little hands to do!
Spread coloured rice on tray to dry.
Using the rubbing alcohol, I found it took less than a half hour for the rice to be totally dry. Mix the rice up at least once so there are no wet spots.
Et voila! Rainbow coloured rice!
