Colored Spaghetti Scissor Practice

Lately I have been working extra hard to entertain Stella with activities that we can do indoors while the weather is bad. It's not always easy. She wants to be outside, as do I. This activity kept her entertained for a decent amount of time. I'll take that! 
{You will need}
food coloring
vegetable oil
ziplock bags

Boil the spaghetti, drain it and allow it to cool. Separate the spaghetti in ziplock bags, add few teaspoons of oil and several drops of food coloring. Shake the bags until the noodles are all colored. Now you're ready to play! Stella used tongs, spoons, and bowls to play, but her favorite thing to do with it was to cut it with scissors. 
She's always thrilled when she can cut things! Obviously you will want to supervise your child if they are using scissors. This is definitely something we'll be doing again, I'm sure!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun. I need to get scissors for Emma. I feel that kids do not have cutting skills, especially when they get to middle school, it is sad to have kids that have no concept of cutting on lines!

    1. I agree! She loves to cut! I tried to teach all of my kids early, even it was just cutting pictures from magazines.

  2. I love this idea! I hope the food colouring is safe though… If so, it's totally worth the mess :)


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
