DIY Bright Pasta For Art

My children and art class students love to play with brightly colored pasta. So over the years I’ve experimented with ways to color pasta for art. I have decided on this method being the brightest and best so far πŸ™‚


All you will need is:

Fun shapes of pasta
Food coloring (neon colors are fun!)
Rubbing alcohol
Plastic zipper bags

First put some pasta in the bag and then about 5 drops of coloring for each cup of dried pasta. Then add about a half a teaspoon of rubbing alcohol. Close up the bag and shake until all of the pasta is colored. Pour colored pasta out onto paper towels to dry.

Once dry there are lots of things you can do with your bright pasta! Use it to glue onto paper and make pictures.



Or make necklaces by stringing it, use it with littles to learn color sorting, or use it as counters for math practice. Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚
