So what's inside?
Blue and Orange colored rice. To dye the rice I used food coloring and white vinegar. I purchased a 5 pound bag of white rice, split it in half in 2 large plastic zip lock baggies. I put in about 1 tsp of food coloring (more or less for desired color) and 1/4 cup of vinegar. I mixed up the bag till all the rice was coated and then spread it on cookies sheets to dry overnight.

A Easter Tic Tac Toe game, from Micheal's. I quickly painted the bottoms of the bunnies and chicks and the "bunny" board with corresponding colors to make a color matching game. I hid the bunnies and chicks in the rice and as Alex found them I would ask what color it was and have him put it on the correct color circle.
Some little moonstone gems (clearance shelf at Michael's) and spiky egg shaped balls (Target dollar spot) and some wooden tongs I already had on hand.
He is still loving his Moon Sand too. I think the Easter bunny may bring some more, and a bigger box to play with it in.
