For many of my activities, you would notice that i am an avid fan of Theimaginationtree.com. Her website offers endless burst of creative energy! This is one of them. http://theimaginationtree.com/2011/07/messy-play-rainbow-spaghetti.html .
We started out experimenting and making a small batch of speghetti with a few drops of one colour (food colouring). After mixing the batch thoroughly, we did some art using them and placed them on paper to create something. (Unfortunately, i couldn’t find any photos of the kids’ works. Only happened to find my example of the playground work) Soon, they were free to explore and play with the items i gave them. They also had some cooking pretend play and served each other the ‘home cooked food’.
Happy noodling time!
