Glow in the Dark NEON Rice Recipe

It had been a bit since we shared GLOWING play activities, so we set out on  mission last week and had lots of fun coming up with all sorts of new play times that glow.  This glow in the dark NEON rice was easy to make and tons of fun!

Glow in the Dark NEON Rice Materials

Instructions
Place the desired amount of rice for each color you want to make in a zip seal bag.  Add about a tablespoon of the glowing paint of your choice.  Here are the paints we use.   I am providing affiliate links for your convenience.  If you use fluorescent paint your rice will GLOW under a blacklight.  If you use glow in the dark paint it will glow in the dark.  You can find a colorful variety of glow in the dark paints here.  Add roughly one tablespoon of water.  The water makes the paint runny which helps it coat the rice while allowing you to also use less.  Seal the bag and then shake, knead, and mix until the rice is evenly coated.  Rosie loves helping with this part.  Then lay the rice out to dry on a cookie sheet or similar container.

That's it! Easy peasy GLOWING rainbow rice!

The best part about this rainbow rice is that it is not just fun in the dark. 
 It is fun with the lights on, too!

Rainbow rice that glows

Just look at how beautiful and vibrant it is!

Instead of making plain old rainbow rice why not make GLOWING rice and have the whole room aglow?   Explore and play both ways or save the GLOWING aspect for an added element of fun here and there.  Either way, I know we will be playing with our GLOWING rainbow rice quite often!
