One recent night after the kids had gone to bed, I decided to make some rainbow colored penne pasta for the kids to use in some projects. The first project we made with the colored pasta was to string together some rainbow necklaces. This is a perfect activity for kids working on learning their colors. It is also a great St. Patrick’s activity. Plus, any sort of beading or stringing work supports the development of fine motor skills. So this activity is a win-win all around!
Note: You can find this and other activities that support fine motor development on my Fine Motor Activities for Kids page.
