Rainbow Colored Pasta Play

We had a bit of spaghetti left over after dinner the other night, and I am so glad we did!  I ended up turning those noodles into tons of fun for Jewel and Rosie.  Pasta noodles are great for sensory play and also for exploring art.

Materials
  • Cooked pasta (prepared just as you normally do)
  • Paint or food coloring
  • Paper
  • A Tray or box

 I set up for this activity the same way I had set up to paint with water beads.  I placed a piece of white construction paper in a shallow box.  I then divided our left over pasta into cups and mixed in a squirt of varying colored paint.  As I added the paint Rosie and I talked about the colors.

I wanted Jewel to get to partake in the fun too, so I set out a little bit of the colored pasta on a plate and let her explore.

Jewel did not put any of the pasta in her mouth, but was closely monitored while playing to ensure safety.  Cooked pasta is a soft material & makes a great first sensory experience for babies; just be sure to supervise.
