Pumpkin Spice Sensory Rice Recipe

I have been wanting to try sensory rice with my son for some time now.  I am so cheap sometimes that not until I had to put my son’s hand held radio in a bag of rice (because he threw it in the tub filled with water) to dry it out, did I know we would try colored rice!  When the radio had dried out,  it did work after doing this, I set the rice aside until I knew what I wanted to do with it.  Well, this week was the week I knew what we would do with it. Pumpkin Spice Orange Sensory Rice would be perfect for playtime.

How to make pumpkin spice & orange colored sensory rice

What to do:  

Put the rice in the pan.  Then in a small bowl put 5 Tbl of water and mix in food coloring (I have a gel orange food coloring I used and we squeezed about 2-3 drops out).  Add the mixture to the rice.  Now stir until blended.  Add a few sprinkles of pumpkin spice and mix again.  My rice was slightly wet.  I then transferred it to newspaper to dry overnight.

My son got to help me make this and he had fun pouring in the color and mixing it up.
