So, what does one use dyed pasta for? Well, this is an easy way to add a cool material to use for kids crafts, play jewelry, and sensory bins.

What You'll Need
  • dry pasta (1 cup)
  • kool-aid packet
  • rubbing alcohol (1 Tablespoon)
  • plastic gallon bag / large ziplock bag
  • foil / tinfoil / aluminum foil
  • baking sheet / baking pan / cookie sheet

Age Range: 2y - 5y      Estimated Time: 2+ hours

How to Do It

Open your freezer bag nice and wide, and stand it up. First, add the cup of pasta. Next, add the packet of Kool-Aid. Lastly, add the tablespoon of rubbing alcohol (this was a mama step). Repeat this process for each desired color.

Seal the bag shut and shake, shake, shake it up (this can be a fun part in the process for the kids to do, too!) Let it sit for a good 15-20 minutes so the color gets nice & strong.

Pour the pasta out onto trays, and get the pasta as flat as it will go so that you can dry it overnight (or for at least 6-8 hours). Make little tin foil boats in the tray to separate the colors.

Once the pasta is dry, the pieces will be all clumped together; separate the pasta. If there are still wet sections once the pasta has been separated, allow for some more drying time.

And there you have it: an easy addition to your crafting materials!
