One of our Summer To-Do List items was 'Make Pasta Necklaces'.
We followed these instructions at Frog, Goose, and Bear for dying the pasta (it works great for rice, too). Princess Pea loved the rainbow colours! (This would have been a great activity to have done at her rainbow birthday party last year!)
We found some nice, satiny ribbon left over from something or other.
Then we tied a loop knot in one end of each length of ribbon, to prevent the first piece of pasta from sliding off.
Granny got one for her birthday and proudly (kindly) wore it for our outing to the Discovery Centre!
