Dyed Pasta Necklaces

A few days ago we dyed some pasta with food coloring and Vinegar.  It needed to set a few days so that they would be completely dry.   Today each child was given a bowl of all of the color pastas and a peice of twine.  the goal was to thread the pasta onto the twine to make a necklace.  As you can imagine, this took some work.  Some got bored quicker than others.  And some needed a hand with theirs, but they all completed a necklace.  It was great for fine motor skills and we discussed color recognition.
