How to Make Sensory Rice Sensory Rice Easter Egg Craft

Grab your supplies. Use the recipe below to make different coloured rice. Place them into bowl for easy access.

Lightly draw the outline in pencil of an Easter egg with different patterns and lines, shapes for them to decorate on a sheet of white card stock.

Place the cad stock into a baking sheet to help reduce the mess. Invite your little one to paint the glue on different sections of the egg to decorate it with the rice. Paint on section at a time with glue and add sprinkle over some of the coloured rice. Shake off the extra rice when they are done and move on to another section. Paint the next section with glue and add a different colour of rice.

Continue until the egg is mostly complete. Outline the egg using a black marker.

For any white spaces that are left colour them in with water colour paints.

How to Make Rainbow Colored Rice

What You’ll Need

  • 1 Cup of White Rice
  • 1/2 tsp White Vinegar
  • Several Drops of Gel Food Coloring
  • Large Ziploc Bags
  • Parchment Paper
  • Baking Sheets or Tupperware containers

How to Make

  1. Combine the rice, white vinegar and food coloring in a Ziploc bag. 
  2. Seal it carefully and mix the contents throughly. 
  3. Repeat for each color.
  4. Lay a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet or line a Tupperware container. 
  5. Spread the colored rice out on the parchment paper and allow it to dry overnight. 


If you don’t have gel food coloring, regular food coloring will work fine. If you want your rice to be more vibrant add more than just a few drops of food coloring and a small amount of white vinegar. Although the instructions calls for 1 cup of rice I usually make between 6-7 cups of rice for a sensory bin.
