Rice Art

 

Summer time is time for outside art, so this time we tried something new.  We have done sand art before where we dyed the sand using food coloring, we have also dyed pasta and used that in our artwork, but we have never tried dying rice and using it for art.  So here's how it went:


I took 1 cup of rice and put it into a Ziploc bag, then added 3 tablespoons of vinegar.


 Then I added about 5 drops of food coloring and sealed the bag tightly.  I smashed the bag all around getting the color to transfer to the rice evenly.  My bag opened up a few times on me (The kids had no idea I was doing this while they were playing outside so we didn't have any issues there).


   I let the rice sit for a few minutes in their bags once they were the colors were thoroughly mixed.


 Then I poured each color into its own tray to dry.  I let it sit outside to dry overnight.  Because I used vinegar, the smell was really strong.   You could use rubbing alcohol instead of vinegar, but I don't know that the odor would be any less intense. 


 The next day, the rice was ready to go (no more odor) and so were the kids.  I cut out some cardboard off of some old cereal boxes to use as our paper.  You might even want to try a thicker cardboard since this project uses a lot of glue!  At first, Lou wasn't so sure what to do.  I just told her it was like sand art and she could make whatever she wanted.  The first thing she usually creates is a rainbow, so here she goes again.  This time there were some nice circles in the middle though.


 Mina was thrilled that she was going to be able to use glue again.  It was a first for her the other day and she really liked doing that part herself.  She stuck with yellow only for the first bit.


 Then added a little orange. 


 She was very good at dumping the excess into the tray between colors.


 On Lou's second piece of art, she decided to layer the rice.  She also decided she didn't need the cap on the glue.  Yes, hers took a little longer to dry, but they all turned out great.


The final masterpieces!

  23. vIt’s obvious some patients with herpes are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2015 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr bobizua Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr bobizua. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write him on mail drbobizua20@gmail.com He deals with Alzheimer virus, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Genital, warts, ALS, BV, UTI, Virginal infection, Genital, Wart, HPV, Hepatitis A/B, Good luck charms, HSV, Pregnancy, Ex back.

  24. I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had HERPES virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR omohan cured them from HERPES virus, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 9 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR omohan because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact DR omohan via dromohanherbalmedicine@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via +2348164816038                                                                             https://www.fb.com/dromohanherbalmedicin

  25. HOW I GOT CURED OF HERPES DISEASE
    I'm here to testify about what DR. OSO did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain,especially inside my body. During the first year,I had faith in God that I would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OSO on how he cured her from herpes disease. And she also gave the email address of this man and advised anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help.so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well I never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedies given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as DR. OSO assured me that I will be cured,after some time. I went to my doctor to confirm if I had finally healed Behold, it was TRUE,the test came out negative. So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact DR. OSO for help.
