Rice Art Turkey

Daddy was working late last night so Megan and I had some fun. I have had this idea saved for a while.

First you mix 1/2 cup rice, 5-8 drops of food coloring and 1 t of white vinegar (this will help the color set) together.

Next you spread the rice onto a foil lined cookie sheet. Make sure to keep the colors separate! Then bake at 200* for 45 minutes. Once cooled the fun begins.

Choose or draw a picture and then paint on some glue. Sprinkle the rice over the glue. I had Megan do this on a cookie sheet so when it was time to shake off the extra rice it was a little bit contained.

The finished guy that has been named Turkey Lurkey. This was a fun project and there is enough rice left over for a couple more afternoons of fun.

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
