A quick simple way to make messy play with only a couple of ingredients.
- cooked spaghetti
- food colouring
- drop of washing up liquid
- plastic toys
I had left over spaghetti so decided as it’s nearly halloween I could use it for messy play. I’ve used cooked spaghetti before but this time I decided to colour it using a natural food colouring. This worked really well and I was happy with the pink colour.
First I put the cooked cold spaghetti into a resealed plastic bag and put in some food colouring. Shake the bag and leave to a couple of hours or over night.
Then put into a tray with some water and sprinkle in some glitter. I put in washing up liquid in the water so that it would bubble as the tray was played with. As it was Halloween messy play I put in some spiders and cobwebs. It’s super easy to change this for your own activity at anytime of year. Try putting ice cubes in!
