Homemade rainbow pasta

$28.00


Rainbow pasta adds nice variety to the collection of sensory bins as it combines several interesting shapes and colors. This translates to a different sensory experience as well as opportunities to learn by sorting and other creative play. It is essentially like playing with a box full of different shaped beads or buttons, but it is more colorful, less messy (beads will tend to roll all over), safer for young children and cheaper! 

Other than messing up the pasta and enjoying the wonderful sounds that makes, children can learn and sort the pasta by color and shape. They can also make simple necklaces by stringing the pasta (penne is easier, elbow more difficult) together; this is great for fine motor skill development.
