I had some plain hand sanitizer (alcohol-based) to get rid of and another teacher asked about ordering some colored rice.  Having plain rice on hand – viola’!

colored rice for preschool

In a jar, I put 4-5 squirts of sanitizer and  several drops of food coloring.  I scooped in a couple of handfuls of rice, stirred it up and spread it out to dry.  I normally do this with a tablespoon or so of rubbing alcohol, but this worked great!  Each batch of color was dry within half an hour.  (And think how clean it is!)
