Colored Rice Mandalas a Hit at Children’s Festival

Colored Rice Mandalas a Hit at Children’s Festival

What a week! Over 1000 people came through the Mandala Magic site activity over the 5 days of the International Children’s Festival. We used 45 gallons of rice to create hundreds of colorful mandalas.

Many teachers and parents asked how the rice was colored to achieve the bright, vibrant colors. Here is the recipe I used – the secret ingredient is hand sanitizer.

  • 8 cups rice
  • 1/2 bottle food coloring (less for lighter color)
  • 4 Tbsp hand sanitizer

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Spread in rimmed cookie sheet to dry (approx 30-45 mins).
