Let all the rice absorb the food coloring!

Then, make sure all the grains absorb the dye well. Keep the bag closed and put it to dry in the sun. Repeat these steps for each color that you use.

After they are all dry, in the plastic bin pour all the colors, one next to the other and that’s it! You can give your baby a plastic spoon so that he can pour the rice into another container. Let him touch and look at the rice.

Using the sensory bin

You can take the opportunity to talk and teach about colors. My son loved this activity. I always do it several times a week with other materials (later I’ll share another post).

DO NOT LET YOUR KID PLAY ALONE WITH THIS ACTIVITY! – Adult supervision is required.
