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 rice color
- 4 C uncooked rice
- 3 T rubbing alcohol
- 2 small globs of food color gel, or 2 T liquid food coloring
- 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.
- Pour onto a cookie sheet and allow to dry completely. It helps drying time to stir it occasionally.
