We were supposed to pour rice, uncooked(!!), into baggies and drop food coloring in as needed to achieve the desired hue.
You may notice my rice looks a little unusual...that's because I rarely buy white rice but rather a mix of wild, long grain, and quinoa. (Yum!) And it was, after all, crunch time for Easter dinner prep so no way was I running to a crowded grocery store for white rice! Ha!
I think it worked just fine! We chose four different colors and bags to begin with and changed them up as we went. After mushing together the rice and the color we carefully added an egg and the girls shook the bags until the color was transferred in many tiny dots.
