A few days ago I was perusing some blogs and found this fantastic idea on Unplug Your Kids.
Coloring rice!!! Love it, love it, love it! It was so easy and all three generations had a great time making it. I won't write out the instructions as I've posted a link if any one wants to try this.
We decided to make a rainbow. First we put the food coloring in and shook up the bags. I put tape across the tops just in case. It was also really cool to do the secondary colors and see how the two colors blended to make a new one.
Once we had all the colors for our rainbow L layered them according to one of our favorite songs I Can Sing a Rainbow.
Here she is singing and pointing out the colors. (anyone who is really observant will notice we got two of the colors mixed up!)
