- rice pictures ( some glue and paper and you are good to go)
- put it in a pie pan and practice writing letters (kind of like an etch-a-sketch)
- learn measuring units
- in general, just playing with it
- hide letters in the rice and make them find the ones that spell out their name
I made some colored rice last night. It was very simple. I used water and colored gel. Other sites suggested using alcohol so the rice will dry quicker. And some used the liquid food coloring.
I took a sandwich sized Ziploc baggie and put 2 Tbsp of water in it. I took the tip of a knife and dipped it in the Wilton's colored gel that I have. Put the tip of the knife in the baggie and then added a cup of white rice. Shake it around and then lay on paper towels on a cookie sheet to dry. With the house being hot, it didn't take but an hour for the rice to dry.
The girls are ready to dig in and play!
