  • You will want to use one bag for each color of rice that you wish to make.  
  • We used two bags to make both red and green rice.
  • Add 3-5 drops of extract to the bag, using one of your favorite holiday scents, if desired.  
  • Then, add a small amount of water
  • The water just helps to coat the rice in the food color.  
  • Seal the bags tightly, and then hand them off to your little ones to mix up.  
  • They can pound them, shake them, squeeze them, and squish them.

  • Once the rice is fully saturated in color leave it to dry right in the bag. Just make sure the bag is left open.
