Mix the food coloring and rubbing alcohol together in a container with a secure lid. Add the rice to this. (I was surprised to find that the food coloring DID NOT stain the plastic Gladware container that I used.)
Make sure the lid is on very tight, and shake, shake, shake. Shake until all the rice is colored.
Place the rice on a cookie sheet to dry. This took a couple hours.We then mixed up some blue. The colors came out more vibrant than I thought they would. Daddy even took a few minutes before soccer practice to help Kimberly shake, shake, shake.
It took quite a bit of practice to pour carefully enough to just fill the shotglass without overflowing it. They had to move slowly not to spill the rice. Kim and Luke achieved this more often than Grace, who is 6 years old, compared to the 2 and 3 year old.
There you have it.... Toddler School fun....family style!
