Sensory Play with Spaghetti

This week my son has been having some great sensory play with cooked spaghetti!

I separated some leftover cooked spaghetti into two resealable bags. I added a few drops of food colouring, sealed the bag and spread the colour around, coating the spaghetti.

I put the spaghetti into a large container and gave it to F. He prodded it for a bit then took it out, put it back in, took it out again. As you can imagine the spaghetti had quite an interesting texture, which is great for sensory play.Sensory Play with Spaghetti - perfect for toddlers!

I have to confess that I was absolutely stunned that F participated in this activity. He’s never been keen on anything with a slimy texture and certainly doesn’t EAT pasta! Perhaps by presenting the spaghetti in a fun way just took the pressure off him.  But this was a great activity to do with leftovers. AND it might mean that F is one step closer to actually wanting to eat pasta!

 

We also made coloured rice for more sensory play!
