    Chippie1's Note:

    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.

      I've been doing this for years and it always turns out great. Like Charlotte J, I've also used it on assorted pasta shapes, and have even tried it on egg shells (to use in mosaics). Easy, colorful and inexpensive - and a LOT cheaper than buying the premade stuff from the teacher catalogs/stores!

      AWESOME!!!!!!! I have 4 cookie sheets sitting on our deck drying in the sun. My mom-in-law must be one of the rare people who still celebrate May Day, and this will be an unusual surprise for my nieces and nephews when my DS's deliver May Day baskets to their cousins. I'll be busy making up 15+ baskets! Will be nicer than using raffia or the usual left-over easter grass. I used the New 'Neon' food Colors. These kids are always in a treat when it comes to me "the funnyfun aunt" THANKS A BUNCH Chippie!!!
