Set up for this great fine motor skill and hand eye coordination activity is easy once you have your rainbow rice made.
- Rainbow coloured rice
- Cardboard (such as egg cartons)
How to make coloured rice:
- 1 cup white rice
- 1/2 tsp white vinegar
- Add as much food colouring as desired
- Combine in a ziplock bag. Seal and mix. Let dry on a baking sheet overnight.
Once rice is ready, put it into small containers so that your little one can easily scoop it out with a spoon. Have your toddler pour the rice in the different sections containers. At first let them experiment – pouring and playing, then ask them to fill up one container then the next.

Is it liquid food color?
You can use either liquid or gel food colouring. I usually use gel food colouring for a more vibrant colour. But both will work.
