I'm a little behind with posting our 5 Days of Crafting. My mom is coming to visit on Wednesday so I've been frantically cleaning so that I'll pass the white glove test -- which I won't -- so why bother, right? Because it's my mom and within 5 minutes of being in the door she'll start in on me about why is the laundry not folded.
I'm taking a few minutes away from folding laundry to share our Day #3 craft - rainbow rice.
I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but I finally got my act together and spent a couple hours after the kids were in bed coloring rice.
|Big bag of rice. About 1 cup of rice in a glass bowl|
|Add a few drops of food coloring and about a tablespoon of vinegar|
|Spread on wax paper on a baking sheet|
|Put in oven at around 250 for about 20 minutes. Just to let it dry and let the color seep in.|
|I'd been saving the shaker spice bottles and had just enough for the rainbow colors.|
The extra rice, I put into Tupperware for easy storage and refilling
They had a pretty good time and my vacuum got a good workout sucking up the extra rice!
