Personally pasta is one of my favorite things to eat. Spaghetti and meatballs would be my food of choice if stranded on a desert island. So who knew we could have so much fun playing with it and not eating it! We started with our craft of pasta trees and then read Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola. The storytime would not have been complete without my rendition of “On Top of Spaghetti All Covered with Cheese…” The only problem, It’s still stuck in my head three days later. Enjoy our pictures and join us next Tuesday July 17th as we make pasta rainbows. Now off to Shoprite to buy more pasta. For the link to see how to dye pasta at home see http://craftingagreenworld.com/2009/07/24/how-to-dye-dried-pasta-in-bright-happy-colors/. I used gallon sized ziplock bags instead of jars and it worked fine.
