DIY Monster Sensory Noodles 

Bring these babies to a play date and you’ll be voted Mom of the Year. And the best part is? They’re SUPER easy to make. I know, us bloggers all lie through our teeth and say everything is super easy! Well this is one you will want to try. Plus, it’ll keep your littles busy for atleast 5 minutes. If you’re lucky like I was, it kept mine busy for about 30 minutes. He absolutely loved these. And to be honest, so did I! You can also pop them back in the fridge and re use for the next day but just dont rinse them too much or the colors will get muddy and dull looking. Unless you’re cool with that.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Food Coloring
  • Spaghetti Noodles
  • Salt
  • Plastic Zip Lock Bags (I used sandwich Size)

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Boil Pasta to “al dente” with Salt (I think the salt helps make the colors more vibrant)
  2. Cool the pasta with cold water and strain
  3. Portion the pasta in the zip lock bags (5 bags for 5 colors and so on)
  4. Squeeze a drop-2 drops of food coloring in each bag
  5. Seal the bag and move it around it mix the color in the pasta
  6. Put the bags in the fridge (I only did it for 10 minutes but the longer the better)
  7. When you are ready to bring them out to play, put each bag (seperately) in the strainer and rinse until the color doesn’t come off on your hands
  8. Mix all the colors together in a bowl, and let your kids get at it!

Trust me, they will love it!

  • how long will the noddles be good for? just that day or can they go into a sensory bin for a few days?

    • As long as they’re not being used for food (primarily) you can keep these for a few days! We all know toddlers will probably taste test anyways, but after a day or so, and being played with, they will probably be a bit dirty!
