We recently made rainbow colored necklaces using dyed penne pasta. Because we had leftover pasta from the activity, I decided to use it by having the kids make their own pasta rainbows. This activity was one of several St. Patrick’s activities I have done with the kids. But it’s also a fun anytime activity that works on colors.
Note: You can find this and other St. Patrick’s activities on my St. Patrick’s Day activities for kids and St. Patrick’s printables pages.
Isn’t it awesome how what can be thought of as a “simple” activity ends up being a great experience with lots of learning options (vocabulary, sensory, fine motor, etc.)? Thanks for sharing this activity!
What a great idea – so effective. I could use this to help teach colours too.

Hi! Followed you over from We Made That blog hop. his is such a cute idea! My daughter is 16 months old so she wouldn’t understand the concept but I like the idea of coloring the pasta and having her glue it (as best she can) on paper. Thanks for sharing. Now following via email.
