This month, Billie Jean is making COLORED NOODLE JEWELRY.
COLORED PASTA NOODLES:
Supplies: Newspaper, Food Coloring (neon or regular), Pasta Noodles (most kinds will work, the tube noodles & ones with holes in the middle work for making
necklaces. Other kinds work for Noodle art pictures), Gallon Size Ziploc Bags, Rubbing Alcohol, Plastic Gloves
Cover work space with newspaper & put on a pair of plastic gloves
Pour one box of noodles into Ziploc bag
Add 3 capfuls of rubbing alcohol
Close bag & mix noodles in rubbing alcohol
Add 4-5 drops of food coloring (you can add more depending on how bright you want the noodles to be!)
Close bag & mix until noodles are well covered in the coloring
Spread colored noodles on newspaper to dry (noodles will dry in about 15-30 mins)
Store colored noodles in Ziploc bags or other sealed containers
You can string the noodles to make necklaces or bracelets & also use them to make creative noodle art pictures on construction paper!
Now’s your time to be creative and have fun!
