How to Make Sand Art in a Bottle without Sand
We wanted to make sand art in a bottle, but we didn't have any colored sand. Also, we like to make our crafts edible whenever possible so that toddlers and preschoolers can participate without getting sick. Isn't this lovely? Just what does one do with such a beautiful piece of art? We put it in our kitchen window.

How to make sand art in a bottle with colored riceTo get started you will need:
White Rice, Salt, Baggies, and Food Coloring
Place dry rice in a Ziploc bag.
Squeeze in 3-4 drops of food coloring.
We used NEON colors.
Add some rice and a little salt to brighten the color.
Shake, then use hands to mix any rice that doesn't take color right away.
