You know how it’s fun (and pretty) to layer sand in small cute shaped glass bottles? Well, ‘A’ wanted to try it with the rice. I picked up a few bottles from Michaels the other day, hauled out the rice and let the Mr go to town. He genuinely had so much fun!! In fact, his original plan was to fill up the bottles and then dump them out and play with the rice. Once he saw how pretty they looked he was hooked. There was no way he was dumping them out.

This would be a great project for many different age groups. If you happen to have an older child it’s a bonus because they can do the entire project from start to finish including making the colored rice. I have to say, I was really impressed with the way the bottles turned out. I think we will most certainly be making a trip to the craft store to get more bottles and do these again.
