Grey love to play with rice in a sensory bin, he buries things and then digs them out, he plays Jurassic Worlds, Monster truck rally and so much more. I had a huge bin with probably 50 pounds of rice, yes, I’m crazy. We used it for my play preschool that I did with Greyson and some of his cousins this summer.

We went to the booth at our cities celebration, fiesta days. They were selling a small amount of rice for 3 dollars, it looked like it was half a cup. I couldn’t believe it. Then I looked on amazon and it was way more expensive. I knew there had to be a better way. 



I took the 50 pounds of rice that I had, and started to experiment. I came up with my own little recipe Grey loved all the colors. He’s been telling me that everything we need to do needs to be a rainbow. If you could hear his little voice you would understand why I couldn’t resist making it happen. 


Homemade Rainbow Rice Recipe

5 cups of rice

1/3 cup white vinegar

food coloring

It just depends how brightly colored you want it. I used my Wilton food coloring and I used about 1/4 teaspoon. I used gallon Ziploc bags and I mixed the vinegar with the food coloring first then I added the rice. 



1 pound of rainbow rice on is nearly 17 dollars. A ten pound bag of rice from Walmart is 5 dollars. I did about 40 pounds of rice for about 25 dollars, that is staggering.
