How to Play

Make some coloured rice by adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar per cup of rice and a quantity of food colouring. Tip onto some kitchen roll, spread out then leave to dry.

Using different food colours in each bowl you can create multi coloured rice.  Once dried, children can play with the coloured rice using funnels, pots,cups, colanders etc.

This activity can be expanded by hiding objects in the rice to create a treasure hunt.

The coloured rice could also be used to create a collage
