We made 3 different colors.
One reason you use rubbing alcohol or vinegar is to get a more intense color.
I actually really like the mixed colors we got with out using it.
I didn't let Adalyn into the rice until a few days ago when I found her quietly playing in it.
She had found an open door into the off limits of Big Brothers bedroom.
For some reason she was leaning against it like this. I found it so funny!
This is reason #2 that you use rubbing alcohol or vinegar.
The food coloring doesn't stay on the rice.
When it is eaten it gets all over your mouth,
or on your hands.
But for our purposes, I really don't mind. Maybe next time I'll try vinegar though.
