Colored pasta–Kids craft

well today I made colored pasta

Decided to make a special project with the kiddos I help watch on fridays….at first all I found was recipes for making colored pasta with rubbing alcohol….but having toddler/preschoolers working with it it scared me that someone would eat it and that would be bad.

So after some searching I found it can be made with vinegar…..other then an annoying smell it seems to have worked great(drying the pasta now)

How I did it was I put a little vinegar in the bottom, mixed in the food coloring I wanted and then added the pasta and mixed it a bit, then covered it  and shook it. i left it for 5-10 mins shaking ever little bit then i spread them out on paper towels and I’m letting it dry.

Can’t wait for the kiddos to play with it….should be lots of fun:)
