Pasta necklaces

Get some penne pasta from your local grocery shop and then you can use this in this great arts and craft activity. Paint individual pieces of pasta with a variety of colours, and then when they dry, thread them on to string or wool to make a necklace or chain. This activity allows opportunities for you learner to request the resources they need e.g., paintbrush, palette, etc., or paint they want, e.g., red, blue, etc. (mand 1M-5M). You can also encourage requests for actions including, pour, help, paint, hold, thread, etc. (mand 7M). This activity also encourages many independent play skills (IP* 8c) and creativity (IP* 8M). You could also have some pre-painted pasta and work on sorting (VP-MTS† 7M), copying specific designs or sequences (†VP-MTS 11M 13M), i.e., red, blue, red, blue (maths 15b).
