We use these noodles for lots of crafts. Kids
love them !
Pasta - use all shapes and sizes
Ziploc Baggie or Bowls
- First we want to color the noodles. Use
baggie or bowl for each color you want to make. Place the desired number of
noodles in the baggie or bowl. Pour enough rubbing alcohol so all the
noodles are covered.
- Add a generous amount of food coloring to
each container of noodles. Put these aside and let them sit until they are
the desired color. (This can take several hours) The longer they sit the
brighter the colors.
- When the noodles have reached the desired
color remove them from the baggie or bowl and lay them on a single layer
paper towels to dry.
Once your noodles are dry, your are ready to be
creative! Use the noodles to make jewelry (use a variety of noodles with a
hole in them), collages, sculptures, or anything else you can dream up.
If you are really feeling creative, use acrylic
paints and a paint brush to hand paint small designs on your noodles.
Note: Give yourself plenty of time for this
craft! It can take hours for the noodles to reach the desired color, and it
can take the noodles up to 24 hours to dry. And... please do not do this craft
without an adults help!
