Colored "Sand"

Where we live we don't really have a yard, so we decided to bring a bit of the outdoors inside for a while, especially since it might be a rainy week. Thanks to the internet and the wonderful mom blogs out there, I found an idea for a colored "sandbox" where you take RICE and add food coloring.

You take 4 cups of rice per color, 2 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol and food coloring, the recipe called for 2 tablespoons of it, but we found that it was over kill and that the strongest color bleed a little onto the other colors, so I tried doing the rest a little lighter, it does come off on your hands for a bit and gets a bit messy, but we clean up nice, and Mia had a ball with it, and we will have more to do on rainy days...A few color were drying still when these picture were taken, we did 4 colors, blue, pink, yellow and green.
