Even a 5-month old can help make it;-)
Aren't these colors vibrant and beautiful!?
All you have to do is take plain rice, add a few drops of food coloring and some water in a ziploc back and shake, rattle and roll around to spread the color evenly.
Then, lay it out on a sheet with paper towels to dry it out.
Here are the crafts we have done so far. We had to include the clouds made of cotton balls because of the books we are reading this week:
We are continuing in the fall theme with using trees and leaves and also including a bit of anatomy with tracing of the hands and arm. The girls love this kind of artwork.
These are really nice opportunities to teach about textures and colors when you use a 3-dimensional craft medium. It really helps preschoolers learn from a hands-on approach and they LOVE seeing the end results of their hard work!!
