lemon scented rice

Just another way to play with the sense of smell and touch. This lemon scented rice was easy to make and smelled amazing.

What you need~
white rice
little bit of water
yellow food coloring
added extras (measuring cups, fresh lemon juice, etc.)
 In a bowl mix the rice, food coloring and little bit of water together. Once coated add some lemon juice and mix.
Let dry then play!
note~ we made few batches, adding different amounts of yellow food coloring each time.

While my kids played we talked about the different shades of yellow, the smell of the rice, and even how the fresh lemon juice tasted.

After this try making your own homemade lemonade!

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
