“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.”
1 Cup Colored Rice

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons rubbing alcohol
  • 12 drops liquid food coloring (color of choice)
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • aluminum foil
  • baking sheet


  1. In a ziplock bag, combine alcohol rub and food coloring.
  2. Pour in the rice and close the bag.
