Dried pasta is a great craft supply! What’s even more fun is tinting it so that you have a colorful medium to work with, and your kids will love the process. Then when they are dry you can make all sorts of craft projects, like these cute little pasta monsters. Perfect for Halloween!
Coloring the pasta is easy, but there is drying time involved. So if you are pressed for time you could simply use plain dried pasta. But if you do have the time, the process is fun and kids will love it.
[Full printable instructions below] You will cover the pasta will rubbing alcohol in a sandwich bag, then add some food coloring. Let it soak for 5 minutes, drain, then let it dry for a few hours.
I used a hot glue gun for this, but if you prefer, you could use instant grab glue which attaches a little faster than plain white glue.
Have fun, and Happy Halloween!
