YOU NEED

Plas­tic bowls Dry mac­a­roni or penne pasta Food colour­ing Glue Glit­ter String

THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT

1. Pour about a cup of wa­ter into each plas­tic bowl. Add 10 drops of food colour­ing – a dif­fer­ent colour in each bowl. Mix.

2. Di­vide the pasta be­tween the bowls, so that the coloured wa­ter cov­ers all the pasta.

3. Let it stand for three min­utes. The pasta should not go soggy but has to ab­sorb some of the colour.

4. Spread the pasta on kitchen towel to dry. Make sure the pieces don’t touch, oth­er­wise they’ll stick to each other. Put the pasta in the sun to dry com­pletely.

5. Dab glue onto some of the pieces and roll them in the glit­ter.

6. Thread the coloured pasta onto the string. Sug­gest colour pat­terns, or leave the chil­dren to choose their own.
