Rainbow Spaghetti

ainbow spaghetti

A tub of these wriggly worms makes for great fine motor skills practice, and the sensory experience is unlike any other! Pull a worm to see how much it stretches. Chop it up with a toy knife. Use tongs to try to pick it up. Pull individual strands out and lay on a piece of paper to make interesting shapes – leave these overnight to dry and he’ll enjoy snapping them too.

You will need:

  • 500g spaghetti
  • Sealable freezer bags
  • Different coloured food colouring


  • Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet. Drain into a colander and rinse under cold running water until cool.
  • Divide the spaghetti into as many freezer bags as you want colours.
  • Add a few drops of a different coloured food colouring into each bag – a little goes a long way. Seal each bag and move the spaghetti around inside: your toddler will enjoy helping you do this.
  • Leave for 10 minutes to absorb the colour, then tip all the spaghetti into a large tub.
