Noodle Necklace

Noodle Necklace

I like to do crafts with the little kids I watch. It gives us something to do and really helps pass the time. It also helps develop those "fine motor skills" everyone is always talking about.

Necklace Making

I didn't really know how to get the noodles all colorful.... so I did some Googling. You can paint them and even spray paint them, but I wanted a nicer look. I decided to go with the dying method. You can find good instructions here.

They turned out really nice!

Oodles of Noodles

I used the same neon food coloring I did on my Easter eggs.

  3. I remember doing that when I was a (younger) kid. I brought mine home from school for my mom. She was a good sport and wore it the rest of the afternoon and evening.
