Dyed rice for sensory bins has never been easier! This 3 ingredient method dries super fast and provides vibrant results!
I love to make sensory bins, almost as much as the kids love to play in them! They still love the sushi sensory bin we made ages ago and it inspired me to try dying rice for more sensory fun.

To make this dyed rice you will need:
Place the uncooked white rice in a zipper seal baggie. I used 3/4 cup per color.
Add a tablespoon of hand sanitizer.
Add 3-5 drops of food coloring (I used the cheap stuff from dollar tree FYI).
Release the air from the baggie to avoid popping it. The shake it, squish it, wiggle the rice around until it is coated completely. The pour the rice on a paper plate and let it dry for about 45 minutes.
Repeat with additional colors as desired.
Naturally, we did all of the colors of the rainbow!
