Have you ever died rice before? think back to your Preschool./kindergarten days. Well I got to thinking the other day how much green rice looks like grass and would make a fun kid project. Of course my little one is still a little on the young side and was set on trying to eat the green rice! Simply start by pouring some plain rice into a zip lock bag and add the color of your choice. I added about 30 drops for my green rice.Mix around the rice until it is the color consistency you like and then pour it out onto a cookie sheet. Let your rice dry for about a day and then you can let your creativity roam free.
Ok for my original idea I had these great tree planned and I would add jelly beans to them and they would simply look amazing… Reality not so much! So I searched the house and this is what I came up with a shoebox lid, a straw and a pot! Remembering these adorable topiaries I had seen at Rook No. 17, Jenn made these adorable Bunny Topiaries and so I thought I would give it a try with my rice. I simply drew a bunny shape on my lid and cut it out, then added glue and rice. I covered my straw with some green ribbon and added some yummy chocolate Easter eggs to my jar. What do you think?
What would you create with a bag of colorful green rice? I still have a bunch so I need some ideas ;)
