Fun with Pasta

Pasta is not only great for cooking but you can make lots of fun things out of it. Here are a few ideas… you will need an adult to help you.


Macaroni Necklace

  • You will need some dried macaroni, string, PVA glue, paint and glitter
  • In a paper cup mix some of your favourite paint colour with a little PVA glue.
  • Use to paint the macaroni and then sprinkle with glitter. Leave to dry.
  • When the paint is dry thread the macaroni onto a length of string and tie both ends together to make a necklace, or use a smaller piece of string to make a bracelet.



Pasta Picture Frame

  • You will need an old picture frame, dried pasta shapes, PVA glue, paint and glitter
  • Using the PVA glue, bush the pasta shapes with the glue and then stick onto the photo frame to cover it completely.
  • Leave the pasta to dry. Once the glue has dried you can paint the pasta in your favourite colours.
  • Sprinkle with glitter and leave to dry. Then all that’s left to do is pop in your favourite picture.
