Combine the following ingredients in a Ziploc bag:

  • 3 tsp rubbing alcohol
  • Several drops of yellow food coloring
  • A few drops of lemon extract
  • 1 cup of white rice

Spread the rice on a cookie sheet and set it out to dry.

Once dry, carefully add white glue to the lemon printable with a paintbrush. Sprinkle lemon scented rice onto the lemon for a textured and yummy smelling art project.
