Coloring Lima Beans for Learning and Crafts Usually, when people think of sensory boxes they think of colored rice. Colored rice, lentils, birdseed are all items that work great in sensory boxes. Today I’m going to show how to color lima beans for learning and crafts and sensory boxes too!
How to Color Rice-- Need two plastic zippered baggies each with 2 cups of rice, 1 packet of Kiwi Kool-Aid drink mix or any other flavor/color of your choice and 1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol. Place contents in the bag - seal the bag and shake to combine. Once color has been evenly distributed allow to air dry on baking sheets.
Dyed Rice For each color/freezer bag of rice, you will need: 1 cup of rice (I buy a huge 5lb or 10lb bag at Walmart very cheap just for this purpose) 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol 1/2 teaspoon kool-aid (weirdly packets can vary from color, to how much is in each envelope but generally each envelope contains 1 teaspoon)
