Pretty, Pretty Fun

Friday, I talked about my first sensory box.  I find them fun.  My hubby finds them pointless and messy.  Ah well.  If I’m willing to take on the mess…

We already dove into a second one.  We redid this colored rice pin I originally found on Pinterest.  The girls and I made it a year ago.  We still have our original jars of colored fun.  Today we upped the ante by making 9 cups of colored rice for another sensory box.

It is very easy.  Eight to nine cups of uncooked rice.  Mix 2 tablespoons of vinegar with the correct amount of food coloring to make the desired shade of color.  Put one cup of rice in a sandwich bag, pour in the food color mixture, seal  bag.  Mash the color around until it coats all of the rice.  Repeat process until all of the rice is colored.

The colored rice needs to be laid out in a medium layer so it can dry.

Once it is dry, it took about 5 hours for this batch, it can become a fun colorful, textural sensation.2013-09-20 17.46.33 2013-09-20 17.46.57
