My son and I actually did this project on an unbearably hot day this summer. I found it on www.kaboose.com, which is a TERRIFIC resource for fun and easy craft ideas.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
One piece of felt or construction paper
Pinwheel pasta (O game pieces)
Farfalle Pasta (X game pieces)
- 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.
- 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.
- Glue spaghetti to felt or construction paper, in the shape of a tic-tac-toe board.
- 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!
