Mosaic Earth Lid

Colored rice is a lot of fun to work with and our earth came out so beautiful with the rice texture. This is a great craft for earth day or any day, really.

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Making colored rice is very simple. Just add rice to a ziplock bag with a few drops of food color and give it a shake. It comes in handy for many crafts and is pretty cool to just play within a bowl.

  • Step 2

    We started making patches with the glue. We covered one at a time alternating the colors of rice.

  • Step 3

    It was easy for my daughter to keep her "land" and "water" separate by working this way. After each patch was covered with rice she could shake off the excess rice and add another.

    Our final earth was so pretty and we decided it definitely needed a felt heart on top.
