Rainbow Rice/I-Spy bottle

We are getting ready to head to Arizona to go to a wedding!! We are driving in the car, twelve hours. I searched Pinterest and found this idea for a home made  I-spy bottle with rainbow rice and we decided to make it. It was really easy and Aubrey and I both had a lot of fun making it. 


1 empty bottle
Bag of rice
food coloring 
Hand sanitizer 
Odds and ends to put in your bottle 
Hot glue gun

This is ridiculously easy. 

We put 1C of rice in a ziplock bag with 3-4 drops of food coloring, and 3-4 squirts of the sanitizer. I zipped the bag shut and let Aubrey shake it up. Probably her favorite part. 

I poured it out on some wax paper and let it dry for about 30 minutes. 

Repeat with each color. 

Gather your trinkets and then add them and the rice to the bottle. (I took a picture of the everything that I wanted her to find and I put other things in there just for fun.) I also wrote down what I wanted her to look for so I could ask her from the front seat.

Hot glue the lid so there are no accidents in the car and Voila!

Shaking it up!! 

Somebody wanted to help out too.

Another thing Aubrey enjoyed was mixing up the rice and just running her fingers through it. 

Here are some some the things that we put in our bottle. 

I didn't get a picture of the final product. I think I was too busy trying to keep rice in the bottle and off of the floor. :) Fun project and we will be doing this again!!
