How to dye chickpeas, rice or beans

Here’s how you dye dry food like pasta, rice, beans, chickpeas to be used in tuff spots play and imaginative small world play.

What you need:

  • food to dye;
  • colours (I used watercolours, but you can use food coloring too);
  • a plastic bottle or a freezer bag;
  • vinegard if you’re using food colouring.

Put the food in the bag/bottle add a few drops of water colours and shake it well. Let it dry. If usinf food colouring you need to add some a little vinegard to help the colour stick.

Let it dry and play.
