This was done using cooked pasta. First I cooked some needles al dente and gave them and a plastic kniffe to Anjali. She spent a happy twenty minutes cutting them.
Then I put food coloring on the noodles and we tried to experiment with the painting. The first layer was the noodles with red and yellow. The second layer was when we decided to see how adding blue would turn out.
Husband says that it looks like a museum masterpiece and even got a book from the library to show us the painter, but I forgot the name.
The butterfly on the right is the folding paint activity we did a few days before.
This is a picture of Anjali's mouth, teeth and tongue when she decided to eat the needles after coloring them
