This week we made some fun pasta jewellery…
Step 1. Paint your pasta, first up we tried to do this with brushes, but it was difficult and took forever to do one piece. Instead we just put the paint in bowls added a handful of pieces of pasta and made sure they were all covered (this was the kids favourite part!):
Be prepared: paint gets everywhere (and even on a few pieces of pasta)…
Lay your pasta out to dry on pieces of greaseproof (parchment) paper, this might take a while – we left ours overnight.Next day sort out your colours (this is a good activity for a two year old) and begin threading:
We used a couple of blunt ended needles I use for sewing my ends in.
You can make necklaces and bracelets too.

What kind of paint do you use, I love this idea and will use it for my 3yr old granddaughter when she is staying with me for the first time over night, her mommy in hospital having a baby. Wish me luck
