Just for Fun - Rainy Day Activities Part II


My son and I actually did this project on an unbearably hot day this summer.  I found it on, which is a TERRIFIC resource for fun and easy craft ideas.


Cereal box
One piece of felt or construction paper
Food coloring
Pinwheel pasta (O game pieces)
Farfalle Pasta (X game pieces)

  1. Mix 2-3 drops of two different food coloring colors in two separate bowls, with ¼ cup water each.  Add Pinwheel pasta to one and Farfalle pasta to the other (about 6-10 piece of each.)  Let them soak for 20 minutes.
  2. Cut the back of a cereal box (use the entire rectangle, then recycle the rest of the box.)  Glue a piece of felt or construction paper to the piece of cereal box.
  3. Glue spaghetti to felt or construction paper, in the shape of a tic-tac-toe board.
  4. Let Pinwheel and Farfalle dry on a paper towel for several hours after soaking is complete.
Good luck and have fun!

Email me photos of any of your projects and I’ll post them here!
