Rainbow Rice

Rainbow Rice

Last week, the students dyed white rice. The students followed the recipe with Ms. Palmer, and had opportunities to measure and stir the ingredients together. The colours of the rice created rainbow rice!!!


The Recipe

Mix the rice and rubbing alcohol together, then add the food colouring. Pour the rice onto tinfoil to lay flat. Wait one hour or more for the food colouring to dry. Then, have fun exploring with a new textile.

List of Materials:

1 cup of dry rice

1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol

3-4 drops of food colouring




The students explored the rice with a variety of tools throughout the week.

Stay tuned to see the pictures of our Rainbow Noodles that the students dyed on Friday.
