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.
