Rainbow Rice Scoop and Pour

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
  • Spoons
  • 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.
