Jewellery Making with Pasta

The newborn, the weather, the short days, the toddler nap schedule all appear to be conspiring against us leaving the house the past few days! And when we do it's for something entirely mundane like a doctors check up or baby weigh-in or like yesterday we took my Mum to the dentist. Bleurgh. Boring.

So we're making the most of indoors... Playing with new toys, making the most of Euna's newfound love for crayoning, reading new books, hanging Christmas lights in her little wendy house and experimenting with some new crafty ideas! And here's one of them... Painted Pasta Necklaces! 

It's pretty self explanatory from here... Paint, pasta, string...


Good stuff for finer motor skills...



Lots of opportunities for talking about colours with her, "that's RED Euna!" "where's the blue?" etc...

She did make some excellent artwork on the newspaper...

Fiddly fiddly...

Left to dry...

Probably her favourite part, being let loose on the tap...

Threading, a little frustrating for her but once again all good for the finer motor skills...



Tada!
