In fact, my four year old had so much fun that he flat out refused to go to preschool the next day, so he could stay home and “have fun with Mom.” I think I need to put more effort and creativity into my time with these younger kids just like I did with their older siblings.
The rubbing alcohol does have quite a strong smell, but once it dries, the smell is gone, so don’t be afraid!

For each color of rice:
4 C uncooked rice
3 T rubbing alcohol
2 small globs of food color gel, or 2 T liquid food coloring
1. In a gallon size ziploc bag, combine all three ingredients. Remove the air and zip close. Smoosh and mash the bag until the color is evenly distributed.
2. Pour onto a cookie sheet and allow to dry completely. It helps drying time to stir it occasionally.
