Ever wanted to dye pasta for crafts and fun sensory activities for the kiddos?? 
I’ve always thought dying pasta would be difficult, or messy. I attempted to colour pasta once before – with paint. What a mess!!
But I now dye all sorts of different shapes of pasta this way and it’s seriously a game changer!


You will need:
Uncooked pasta
Food dye
zip lock bags
a tray
paper or baking paper

Place your pasta in a ziplock bag.
Put a small amount of vinegar in the bag, and then some drops of food dye – try to get the food dye on top of the vinegar as the vinegar helps it spread around the pasta better.
Close it up and gently ‘massage’ the pasta so as to spread the colouring evenly all over. Do this bit gently especially if you’re using a pasta that has some pointy bits otherwise they’ll tear little holes in your bag!
Allow to sit for a few minutes in the bag.

Line a tray with baking paper and empty the bags of pasta onto the tray.
Allow to dry in the sun or on a table inside.
If you need it soon, you can put the tray {with baking paper} in the oven on ‘defrost’ mode for a little while until dry.


Pretty, isn’t it! I’m excited about all the crafts we can do with pasta :o}
