Painted Pasta Kids Craft
Once you learn this method for painting pasta, you will never do it another way!
- Testors craft paint
- Zip topped bags
- Pasta any size or shape
- Paper butcher, parchment, or waxed will work
- Skewer or other disposable wood stick
Add 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of paint to a zip topped bag. You do not have to measure this! Just add a couple of good squirts of paint to the bag.
Add about 4 handfuls of pasta to the bag. Again, you do not have to measure this! This project is really forgiving.
Seal up the bag and then let the kids have it if you want. Just squeeze and shake the bag until the pasta looks covered.
Open the bag and check to make sure you have fairly good coverage. You can seal it up again and shake more or even add a bit more paint. Remember you don't want the pasta to get overly wet. Once coated, pour the pasta out onto some paper.
The spread the pasta out so it is not touching to dry. I just used a skewer to move the pieces around so my hands did not touch the wet paint. Then allow the paint to dry for a few hours or even overnight.
