I have been wanting to try sensory rice with my son for some time now. I am so cheap sometimes that not until I had to put my son's hand held radio in a bag of rice (because he threw it in the tub filled with water) to dry it out, did I know we would try colored rice! When the radio had dried out, it did work after doing this, I set the rice aside until I knew what I wanted to do with it. Well, this week was the week I knew what we would do with it. Pumpkin Spice Orange Sensory Rice would be perfect for playtime.
What you need:
a few cups of rice (you can use as little or as much rice as you want), food coloring, water, pan (or a metal or glass bowl), spoon, newspaper, and pumpkin spice.

What to do:
Put the rice in the pan. Then in a small bowl put 5 Tbl of water and mix in food coloring (I have a gel orange food coloring I used and we squeezed about 2-3 drops out). Add the mixture to the rice. Now stir until blended. Add a few sprinkles of pumpkin spice and mix again. My rice was slightly wet. I then transferred it to newspaper to dry overnight.
