Colored Rice Art Craft

Summer days are getting longer at our house and I am put Phoebe in the task of researching for some fun craft ideas. This one is colored rice. We took a half cup of rice and put in about 1/2 a teaspoon of rubbing alcohol then added food coloring. We just stuck with the 4 basic colors and they all made some pictures with glue. It kept us busy for about an hour and they had fun. Really this ended up being 2 activities because they liked coloring the rice about as much as making the pictures with it.

what a great activity. I will have to remember that. I need lots of ideas of things to do with my boys when it is so hot outside.
