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.

Then, SHAKE! SHAKE! SHAKE!

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.

After it dried, the fun began!

First, we made necklaces…

Using string, we made different patterns with each color.

Then my son came home and being a big 4 year old, he stated that, “Boys don’t wear necklaces! Only girls!” He cracks me up. So I decided to turn our artwork necklaces to a subject he enjoys, math.
