Dyed Pasta

If you have a toddler, chances are you have a pasta necklace or a pasta art project. It’s a right of preschool and something that all children seem to love. Which means that having some fun, bright colorful pasta at hand is a great way to keep your toddler (or older children) busy at home as well.

Things you’ll need:
Pasta (various shapes)
Rubbing alcohol
Food coloring
Small zipper baggies

Things to do:
1. Fill each baggie halfway with a mix of pasta shapes.
2. Pour in enough rubbing alcohol to cover the pasta.
3. Squeeze in five to six drops of food coloring. More will make darker colors, less will make lighter.
4. Massage the bag to mix the color into the alcohol.
5. Allow the pasta to sit at least 30 minutes or until the pasta has reached the color you desire.
6. Drain in a colander and spread onto a paper towel lined cookie sheet to dry.
