* "All About Me" Personalized Eye Spy Rice Bottle


The girls and I love to make our own 
So, as one of our summer fun activities, we decided to make personalized 
All About Me Eye Spy rice bottles.


"C" loves pink and all things girly. 
So we made a little batch of 
pink and purple rice for her bottle. 


To make the colored rice, 
we mixed white rice with 
liquid food coloring and a few pumps 
of alcohol-based hand sanitizer 
in some zip-lock bags. 

To get nice strong colors, we used 
A LOT of food coloring!

We let it dry on a paper towel lined dish. 


We collected things that represent her personality....
lots of little kitty buttons and toys, 
tiny pink flowers, 
pink glittery beads and pink jewels,
a couple of tiny pink butterflies,
and her name in pink and purple letter beads
strung on a piece of pink cord. 


After everything's in the bottle,
add a dab of glue to the lid and twist on. 


I wish we had tiny photos of the girls to put inside
or mini shrinky-dink "portraits" of them!
How fun would that be?!


"E" went with a blue and green theme.
She had frogs, snails, 
turquoise and lime green buttons,
cool beads, and bug buttons in hers
since she's my nature girl. 


Fondly,
Pink and Green Mama
