While the boys were out on a Home Depot run (arh! arh! arh!) Mama and baby girl got to spend some much needed quality 1:1 time. Earlier in the week, I noticed I have an abundance of pasta. I mean, can’t fit anymore in my pantry, kind of abundance. I decided to throw it in our art section to create necklaces but this turned into an even better project. Making colored sorting pasta has never been so much fun.

Supplies:

  • Plastic bags
  • Tempera paint
  • Pasta of choice
  • Sorting cups
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Wax paper for drying

First, I placed pasta into three big plastic bags.

Then, add tempera paint inside each bag.

Until all pasta is colored in paint.

Baby bear wanted to add some glitter so of course, we did!

Finally, dump each bag onto wax paper and let dry. It took about 45 minutes to an hour for this to occur. In the mean time, we had snacks and had you know, girl talk.
