The colors looked so pretty!
Then we dropped the dry pasta into our dyes.
I let them sit in there somewhere between a half hour to an hour. It was amazing how bright they got! After that, I laid out some paper towels on my cookie sheets to let them the pasta dry for an hour. I the mean time we ate dinner and when we were done, voila! This is what we had:
Beautiful, bright pasta!
The kids had a little trouble getting the dental floss through the pasta, so, I decided to tape the end of the floss to a toothpick. Ta da! Homemade needle for little kids. (I also broke the tip of the toothpicks to make them a bit duller so they'd be kidsafe.)
These little guys sure enjoyed it! They're still wearing their necklaces around.
...and...we made it to bed time with the three who used to be 3under3!
