The girls and I continued our
Rainbow Camp Week
with this fun project.
We used food coloring
to dye white rice
for a new Rainbow Activity Box.
I wanted to use rubbing alcohol
to “set” the food coloring color
with the rice
(the same way I dyed the noodles
for our sun catcher rainbows)
But, I was running low on rubbing alcohol,
so I substituted with Purelle (hand sanitizer)
It worked perfectly!
4-5 pumps per sandwich bag and 4-5 drops
of food coloring.
(I re-used the bags I dyed the noodles in)
I think it actually dried a lot faster!
I found this great idea at
They did a much more sophisticated
color palette with their rice.
We stuck with our basic 6 colors,
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet.
So pretty before we mixed it all together…
