St. Patrick's Day Sensory Bin

This is really easy to throw together if you've got green colored rice on hand, if not I'm adding how to make it, and it's still pretty easy all in all. Basically just put the green colored rice into a sensory bin, we used a green bowl from Dollar Tree to keep with the green theme, then add in whatever little trinkets you have. We weren't able to go to Dollar Tree and gather up any new materials for thia one, so we made due with what we had. Ours turned out like this:

To make the green rice just put some uncooked white rice into a Ziploc bag and add a few drops of vinegar. Coat the rice with the vinegar by moving them around with your fingers from outside of the bag. Then add a few drops of neon green food coloring into the bag and do the same thing to coat the rice with color. Add more food coloring until you get the desired color. You can just let it dry in the bag, or lay the colored rice out on a piece of foil to dry.
