I remember when I was a child we would make macaroni necklaces at kindergarten. I grew up on a farm and we often played with homemade toys and resourceful items from Mums cupboard. Macaroni necklaces was one of my favourites and it is such a fun and easy activity to do with your kids. The children will love the tactile play with the pasta and threading the necklace is an excellent way of developing their fine-motor skills.
What you will need:
String or wool (40cm each necklace)
1 pack of Penne Pasta
4 large zip lock bags
Grab some string or wool and cut it to size, make sure there is enough room to tie a knot at the end. Leave enough room so the necklace can go easily over your child’s head.
Get some pasta, any type will do as long as you can thread it over the necklace. Penne or macaroni tends to work best for this. Pop some paper towel on 2 baking trays. Equally place the pasta into the four zip lock bags and place 4 drops of hand sanitiser into them followed by your desired colour and close up the zip lock bags.
⭐️ Let your child move the pasta around in the zip locked bags. This a fun thing to do and can be a little messy, put a smock on them and they should be fine.
The pasta should move easily with the alcohol gel all around the bag. Make sure all the pasta is covered with the colour. Once you have reached your desired colour then remove from the bags and place onto the towels to dry. This should take 10-15 minutes.
When it is dried it’s ready to go.. the fun part now - Threading the pasta onto the necklace and tie a knot on the end. There you have it, a beautiful and colourful macaroni necklace to play with and your children will love it! I quite enjoyed it myself, brought back the child within myself
With any leftovers you can make bracelets or stick pasta onto paintings with glue to make colourful collages. Enjoy in your FunPod!
