small pasta (like macaroni or shells)
liquid food coloring
small plastic food storage containers (1 per color)
First put some pasta in each of your plastic bowls. I recommend filling about 1/3 full of pasta.
Then, fill each bowl with rubbing alcohol. You want some room in the bowl to be able to shake/mix the pasta, liquid and coloring, so don't fill it all the way! Just enough to cover the pasta.
The noodles glue very easily with white school glue to paper, chipboard, etc. I find for small fingers it works well to put some glue in a bowl or paper plate and let your little one hold the macaroni and dip it into the glue. It's a little easier than squeezing glue on each piece. Hope you have some fun!!
