This is a great project to encourage fine motor skills with painting of the small pasta and then threading or twisting the pasta onto the pipe cleaners.
MATERIALS: Pasta, paint, pipe cleaners, wooden block and glue.
DIRECTIONS: For us this was a 2 day project. First we painted our pasta shapes using poster paint and then let the dry overnight. If you wanted to skip this step you could just dye your pasta with food colouring.
To make your sculpture base, drill some small holes in a wooden block and glue pipe cleaners into the holes. If you don't have a wooden block you could use play dough or clay to make the base. Once you have made the base you could also use it for other projects threading beads or other items to make different sculptures.
Begin threading and twisting your pasta onto the pipe cleaners to make your sculpture.
