Easy St Patricks Day Craft -How To Make Rainbow Rice
Plastic Bags or Disposable Container
Uncooked Rice (Amount depends on how much you want. I used 2 cups per color)
With the large red heart upside down attach on black heart to the point of the red heart for the head. Attach the other black heart to the bottom for the “bottom”. Glue wiggle eyes on the head (top heart). Attach the chenille stick to the head (fold it in half making two sides). I used a hole punch to make two holes in the top of the head and strung the chenille stick through it taping it to the back to secure it. Twist each side into an antennae. Glue the small hearts on the body of the love bug.
