I recently did a sensory table my kids were crazy about. I used a leftover half bag of spaghetti and boiled it in small batches in food coloring and water to make a whole rainbow of pasta fun. They enjoyed it so much I just had to share on my blog as my 100th post…
Here it is after boiling before going into their sensory table.
Here it is in the sensory table on the floor. I recently got a tablecloth from a summer clearance for 20 cents! It is wipeable on the top and soft cotton on the bottom which sticks really well to the carpet and saves my living room floor. Super easy cleanup from all of our messy adventures.
The kids were thrilled during the 45 minute pasta playtime.
This made for a squishy and bright activity with many giggles and squeals! A few tips on the pasta, I boiled while trying not to waste food coloring when possible. For instance I boiled the red right before the purple so I could remove the red pasta and just reuse the red water and add some blue for purple. Also yellow and orange same thing, I added red to the yellow water. Also I sprayed just a bit of olive oil on the pasta when it was drained so the noodles wouldn’t stick to each other and the kids as much and play would be more slippery fun.
Thanks for stopping by!
