Children's Craft Pasta Bracelets.

This is an affordable, fun childcare activity for you and your child.

Please note: Children should not be left unattended while making and wearing pasta bracelets.

Painted pasta for necklaces.What you need;

The activity, step by step:

Part one; paint the pasta:

  1. Prepare your paints according to the manufacturer's instructions;
  2. Apply the paint to the uncooked pasta; use a brush or hands if your child enjoys getting messy!
  3. Thread the painted pasta onto a length of string and hang to dry.

Part two; make the bracelet:

  1. When your pasta is dry remove it from the string; separate any pieces of pasta that stick together carefully to prevent them snapping;
  2. Use the scissors to cut the elastic to the desired length; it should easily slide on and off your child's wrist;
  3. Thread your painted pasta onto the elastic;
  4. Tie the two ends together, or use a pull-apart clasp.
