TUTORIAL: Making Rainbow Rice!

We have been making 'Rainbow Rice' for our sensory table at Dapto Messy Church this coming Sunday. 

It is very easy to make!

  • Rice
  • White vinegar
  • Measuring cup
  • Tablespoon
  • Food colouring
  • Large ziplock bags
  • Baking trays
  • Foil

  • Measure rice into ziplock bags and spoon in vinegar. You will need one tablespoon of vinegar per cup of rice. 
  • Add food colouring to bag and seal it shut. 
  • Gently knead the ziplock bag on kitchen bench until the colour is evenly distributed throughout the rice. If it is not dark enough simply add more food colouring!

  • Line a baking tray with foil and tip the wet coloured rice mixture onto it. 
  • Spread the rice into a thin layer using a spoon.
  • Leave trays in a sunny spot until the rice is dry. The vinegar smell will go away as it evaporates :)
  • Store the rice in fresh ziplock bags until it is ready to use.

Too easy!

We are using our rice as part of our Noah's Ark theme. You could add funnels, little cups, glitter, plastic animals and boats to the rice to add an extra element to the sensory play.
