Colored Rice

Well, I have recently become addicted to a website called Pinterest!
It's filled with so many crafty ideas and just plain awesome stuff.
While browsing I came across this awesome idea, colored rice!

One of my summertime goals is to make something fun with Slade every week!
I try to keep our days filled with valuable time together and since little sister likes to sleep in until 10:00 it gives us plenty of time for some one on one mommy/son time!:)

This was so simple and Slade had so much fun!

We started off with lots of rice!

AND food coloring. I wish I had bought 2 of these to make the coloring a little brighter but it still turned out great!:)

He poured 1 full bag into the pot.
He was having so much fun!

He thought this step was so cool.
Watching the rice turn from white to yellow, blue, red, & green!

We then poured each one onto brown paper bags and let them sit for an hour for drying.
This step he didn't like so much!:)

He was super excited about what we had made that he couldn't wait for Honour to see it!:)
...they have a blast playing with it!

Colored Rice!
A GREAT outdoor toy!:)
