Worms are fun. We dig for real ones in the backyard, make them for lunch ( pasta ones) and even paint with them ( pasta ones again! ). I love this activity because it’s easy, different and with older children you can challenge them to paint specific shapes, or letters using only the pasta. It can also be used as an example of before and after, talk about the process of cooking and what happens to the pasta when it’s cooked.
- Gather your materials. You will need some spaghetti, a pot, some paint , a plate and some paper.
- Cook your spaghetti. Let cool but don’t wait too long it will get too stiff to paint with.
- Add some paint to your plate .
- Dip your wiggly worm in
- Print onto your paper.
- Add more colors if you wish
- Let dry.
