Making Colored Rice ....

Colored rice is a fun medium to use for different craft or art projects.  For a Kansas Day project my daughter and I colored rice and glued it to a Jayhawk.

Materials Needed:

  • Food Coloring
  • Rice
  • Ziplock Bags
  • 1 Tablespoon of water for each color
  • Glue
  • Paper Towels

Steps for Each Color You are Making:

  • In a ziplock bag add 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Add food coloring to the water to your liking.
  • Add the rice you would like to color to the colored water.
  • Squish the rice around in the bag until all of the rice is colored.
  • If the color is too light you can add more food coloring.
  • Once your rice is all colored spread out the rice on a paper towel to dry.
    (I let my rice dry over night.)
  • Repeat for each color.

Making Your Project:

  • Spread glue all over the area you want to add colored rice.  We did one section at a time.  For example we spread glue on the beak.
  • Cover the glued section with the colored rice.
  • Over a trash can shake off any extra rice.
  • Repeat for each section.
