Summer Craft Time With Noodle Part 2 - NOODLES

On Monday when I found out I would be getting my tooth pulled I knew I needed to have a fun day with my daughter seeing as I knew I was going to be be pretty tired for a few days and not able to do very much with her so we went right for our Summer Jar and selected a slip.
Assignment: Let's dye pasta and create pictures or jewelry with it!
I found this idea, where else, on Pinterest via Aggieland Mommy and her summer bucket list. It was a hit as soon as my daughter saw the pictures of the colored pasta. Off we went to shop: pasta, rubbing alcohol, food coloring, string for out necklaces, and small Ziploc bags.
Easy steps to dye the pasta: 
- Put pasta in Ziploc (about 1/2 Cup)
- Cover with rubbing alcohol (about 1/4 Cup). 
- Add food coloring (Follow the box to get various colors)
- Zip the bag shut and mash the bag around to coat the pasta. 
- Lay them flat in the bags (above) and let them soak about an hour.
- Turn them over every now and than to coat the pasta better.
- Layout on paper towel to dry.
The more food coloring you add the brighter the colors
Once the pasta was dry the real fun began. My daughter wanted to make pictures, but she had an idea. She asked me to cut large paper dolls out so she could add noodles over them. I used Twinkle Toes and Everyday Paper dolls to make these. Super fun.
 Of course there was also some necklace making as well. 
 And we have a ton left over for another day, not to mention tons of leftover pasta to enjoy for lunch.
I am happy to report my dentist appointment went smoothly and I am feeling much better today. I should be back in my craft space tomorrow! Enjoy your day all!
