Glowing Pasta Noodles

Materials
Note:  You can use any noodle for this activity, but keep in mind that you will need pasta noodles that can be threaded to make jewelry.

Method
  • Begin by placing the desired amount of dried pasta noodles into a bag, using one bag for each color of noodles that you wish to make.
  • Add a squirt of neon paint to the bags along with 2-3 tablespoons of water.

  • Seal the bags and mix until all ingredients are combined and the pasta noodles are fully saturated in color.

  • Once dry, play can begin!

Glowing Noodle Play

You may want to break the noodles apart a bit inside of the bag before pouring them into a play bin or container.  They have a tendency to stick together as they dry.
My girls were so excited to make pasta necklaces and couldn't wait to jump right in!

We used yarn to thread our noodles, and that worked great!

Threading the noodles is great for developing fine-motor skills, too.

Extend the Fun
  • Add kitchen gadgets so that kids can pretend to cook with their rainbow noodles.
  • Add diggers and tubes so that they can and dump and fill.  Toddlers especially love this!

  • Fill empty tubes with pasta and make rain makers.
  • Give kids uv- flashlights and have them head outside to play glow-in-the-dark tag!  The pasta necklaces will GLOW, helping the kids to find each other.
  • Have kids sort the noodles by color.

    FUN KID PROJECT:  Make glow-in-the-dark noodles for arts, crafts, and sensory play.  This is awesome!

    Tips & Storage 
    • Your glowing pasta noodles can be used again and again! 
    • Store any leftover noodles in a bin or container between play times, and then just pull them out when it's time to play!
    • For the best effect you will want to use a blacklight for this activity. 
    • My girls love using these super cool flashlights.  
    • We also have a blacklight fixture that we often use.  
    • If using a blacklight I also recommend these uv-safety glasses.  My girls love wearing them, and they will protect kids eyes if (or shall we say when) they shine the lights at each other.
