Kids' Craft | Cooked Spaghetti Art

This is such a fun craft for kids!  It uses stuff you probably already have on hand.
The Builder used to go to a Co-op preschool for his 3 year and 4 year programs.  I loved going to the co-opI got to see for myself what he was like in school.  And it was great to be involvedIf any of you have ever questioned whether you would enjoy such a preschool, I say "Go for it!".  You will not regret it!  But, we used to have mandatory meetings that we would have to attend.  At the last meeting The Builder's last year, they had guest speakers.  Their names were John E. and Danita Thomas.  They happened to be from our hometown and have written several kids' craft books.  They did a presentation that night and had their "Special 10th Anniversary Edition" for sale.  I bought one.  It's not like I didn't have 15 other kids' craft books lying around, but I liked them.  So, I bought it.  Two days ago, we did their "Spaghetti Art" project.  This is NOT a sponsored post.  I just have the book in my house and believe in giving credit where credit is due. 


So, first things first.  Boil the spaghetti noodles.  After draining, spread them out and let them cool.  Dry them a little with paper towels. If you leave the paper towels on them while they're cooling, it's a pain in the booty getting the paper towels off.  Just to let you know! 

You'll also need:
School glue
wax paper
glitter, such as:

Pour the glue into bowls--we used small paper plates.
Dip the spaghetti into glue and form it into shapes on the wax paper.



Make sure the spaghetti is close to the other pieces of spaghetti and overlapped.


Once you have your pattern, sprinkle with glitter.
(My dining room still has not recovered from the glitter-fest!)


Let dry overnight.
Peel off wax paper.
Hang!
