Make your own rainbow spaghetti for sensory play

I always cook way too much spaghetti, and instead of throwing it away I keep it in a sealed container or Ziploc bag. I then use these leftovers for sensory play.

How to make your own Rainbow spagetti

You will need:
Cooked spagetti
Food colouring in assorted colours
Ziploc bags
  • Add a few drops of food colouring to some spaghetti in a Ziploc bag.
  • Mix the colouring in well by closing the bag and shaking it well
  • Leave the spaghetti out to dry
How to use your rainbow spagetti
Present the spagetti as a rainbow and let your child enjoy playing with it, squishing it between their fingers.
Older toddlers and children can be given plastic knives and scissors to cut up the spaghetti.
You could also add containers and a spoon. Fork and tongs to allow them to transfer the spaghetti from one container to another.
