Pasta fun for 18 month olds

short-shape

I was making dinner tonight and my daughter was trying to grab the pasta away from me.  It was then that I remembered making pasta jewelery when I was a child.

While dinner was cooking we threaded Penne and Rigatoni onto a piece of string and had the greatest fun.  Of course my daughter had try to eat some of the pasta which she quickly learned tasted a lot better when cooked.

This game is fantastic for fine motor skills and hand eye co-ordination.  It’s also a lot cheaper than some of the expensive cotton reel toys out there.

When your child is done playing, place the pasta and the string into a zip lock bag for next time.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER LEAVE YOUR CHILD ALONE WITH ANY LENGTH OF STRING AS THIS POSES A STRANGULATION RISK.

Have fun!

Bright blessings,

Mama R
