This activity encourages students to work through a multi-step process. The first step encourages children to use their fine motor skills while tracing the image in the stencil. The second is carefully layering glue onto the image. The third is dropping a little bit of rice at a time onto the image, being careful to hold the rice between joined fingers. Not only do you end up with a great result but students gain some fine motor experience as well!

It’s a good idea to keep all the work inside a paint tray to eliminate problems that may happen from potential spills or mess.

Choose your favorite stencil shape and place onto the card paper. Cover the inside of the stencil entirely with glue. Spread the glue using an old paint brush so you get an even layer.

Next, remove the stencil. Grab a pinch of Colored Rice and spread all over the card paper. Make sure you layer on as much as possible!

You have to ensure that the entire image is covered. The more Colored Rice you drop onto the image, the better chance you have of the rice adhering straight to the glue.

Wait for the glue to dry completely! Lift up the edge of the card paper and shake off the excess rice.

How brilliant is that! The Colored Rice has a wonderful multi-color blend that makes any shape stand out. The final step is to cut the shape out.

Cut around the rice shape to give it a small white border. Apply a bit of tape or sticky tack to the back of the shape and post it up on a classroom wall!

Combine several different shapes together!
