Remember making things out of dyed noodles when you were little?
I thought Katie needed some to play with while in her funpod.
I used vinegar and food coloring. Don't they look lovely all lined up? I turned them over every hour or so for, I don't know, 12 hours-ish.
This is a good bag- some vinegar (I didn't measure, just sloshed some in) and some food coloring. You mix it all up FIRST, and then put in the noodles.
This is the first bag I did. I put the noodles in first, and then mixing the vinegar and food coloring together got all bubbly, and it just never was as good.
Then I put them all on a towel to dry overnight-it took another 12 hours for them to dry.
Katie does enjoy spooning them into other containers, stirring them up, and taking them off of a shoelace.
A different kind of noodle would be better, then she could string them herself, but the penne shape is too difficult.
I think someday it will be fun to sort them into a muffin tin by color.
We play with these at least once a week!
