Are you searching for a way to begin playing messy but not sure where to start? Rainbow Noodles is the introductory activity you need! This activity is what got me hooked on sensory play. The appeal of playing with food outside is what makes it extra fun and unlike paint they can taste it without hearing NO and the what makes messy for fun is you
Here is what you’ll need: Food coloring , Fideo noddles – I used this kind but any noodle will work, Mixing bowls -be sure you have enough mixing bowl for that amount of colors you will be using, Sensory Table I used this type because after a quick rinse it becomes a fun water table but if you are looking for a splurge get this!
Cook the noodles according to the package and drain as usual. add water to your mixing bowls, about 2/3 of the way full. add the food coloring to the water, I start with 10-15 drops and add from there depending on the pigment level. Add your noodles! Let your noodles sit in the colored water for 10 mins. stirring occasionally. Check to make sure you are getting the level of pigment you want. Add more color if you need too, don’t be afraid! Rinse the noodles and place them in an air tight container in the fridge until you are ready to play. Hope you love this activity as much as we do!
