What’s needed?
Pasta – any with a hole in it (Penne, Rotelle, Calamarata and Ditalini all work well).
Threading laces, thick wool or string.
Beads if you have them.

What age foodie? 2-3 years up.

What do we do?
Tape the string down to a table.
Let your child thread the pasta and beads as they wish. Knotting the string both sides can stop the beads and pasta moving about. The end product – necklaces and friendship bangles with a difference!

Foodie learning:
Threading skills, hand-eye coordination. Say the colour and names of the types of the pasta being used.
