Spaghetti Ornaments

3.8 based on 46 ratings

What You Need:

  • Cold, cooked spaghetti noodles (no sauce, please)
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Waxed paper
  • Small bowl

 

What You Do:

  1. Have your child place a sheet of wax paper on the table for an easy to clean work area.
  2. Pour some glue into the small bowl.
  3. Now your child can dip a strand of spaghetti into the glue and arrange it on the wax paper into a curly S or curlicue shape. Make sure the strands are touching, so when it dries you can lift the shape off in one piece.
  4. Repeat with as many strands as you'd like. How many words that begin with the letter S can your child think of?
  5. Have your child sprinkle his creations with glitter. He may need to dab a bit more glue on them first, if it seems to have dried.
  6. When finished, let the spaghetti ornament dry overnight.
  7. Once the glue dries, carefully peel the wax paper off the spaghetti ornament.
  8. Attach a string to the masterpiece, and hang it up.
