Spaghetti painting

D and Iz loved free-playing with their rainbow spaghetti (here) but I wanted to let D have fun doing something slightly different too... So he painted with it :)

All you need is some cooked spaghetti (we used some of our rainbow-coloured strands but you could use regular plain stuff), some paint and a piece of paper!

This is great for fine motor control/finger manipulation. You can also use it as a colour recognition exercise or just a fun way to express yourself with paint.

D loved the "wiggly worms" and had lots of fun "changing" their colours by dunking them in the paint. And his end picture is pretty cute :)


Have you painted with pasta? You can buy such cool shapes now I can definitely see us repeating this activity many times over!
