How to Make Colored Rice


How to Make Colored UNCOOKED Rice:

1) Decide how much rice you want to make. If you only want to fill a small bin, 3-5 lbs. will work. If you want a larger sensory table, use about 15-20 lbs. of rice.

2) Fill large plastic bags with 5 cups of rice, 3 tablespoons white vinegar and 30-40 drops of food coloring. The more food coloring you add, the more vibrant your rice will be.

3) Seal bag and mix until colors are evenly distributed.

4) Open the bags and let them air out overnight. You can also pour the rice out onto parchment paper and let it dry out on your table or kitchen counter that way.
