How To Make Colored Pasta
Colored pasta is fun for so many activities (like beading, sensory boxes, artwork, shadow boxes, and more), and it is very easy to make! Here's an easy step by step:
1- Divide a pound of pasta into four gallon- sized zip lock baggies.
2- Let your child choose a color of food coloring and add 4-8 drops of into the bag.
3- Let your child squirt three pumps of hand sanitizer into the bag. (Alternatively, you could use rubbing alcohol.)
4- Zip the bags up and let your child squish the ingredients together.
5- Spread the pasta out to let it dry. We did the entire process outside to add a natural element to the experience. Our wonderful Houston sun dried the pasta in about an hour and a half!
I'll share a couple activities we did with the pasta in the next week or so. Until then, have fun coloring your pasta!!
I may share at any of these parties!
