Colored Rice

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chippie1

Was looking for a different craft for my students to do in Catechism class and found one that uses colored rice. Coloring the rice was so easy and perfect for our Easter craft. Recipe originally came from, but I mixed up the food coloring to get some different shades.
