Rainbow Oats {How to Dye Oats for Sensory Play}

To dye the Rainbow Oats, you will need:

  • 6 cups of rolled oats (1 cup for each color)
  • Water
  • Liquid watercolors or food coloring
  • Paper towel

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • In a bowl, mix about 1.5 tablespoons of water with a few drops of liquid watercolors (if you are using food coloring, you will need likely 8-10 drops depending on how vibrant you want them).  You want just enough liquid to coat the oats.  You do not want them to be drenched.
  • Then add the rolled oats.
  • Once all the oats were evenly coated, dump the mixture onto paper towel and leave to dry in the sun.
  • Drying time was only about an hour.
