Kool-Aid Dyed Pasta
Activity DesignerMelissa Klinker
So, what does one use Kool-Aid dyed pasta for? Well, this is an easy way to add a cool material to use for kids crafts, play jewelry, and sensory bins (to name a few).
What You'll Need
How We Did It
Open your freezer bag nice and wide, and stand it up. First, add the cup of pasta (a step for my two-year-old, V). Next, add the packet of Kool-Aid (definitely a V step!). Lastly, add the tablespoon of rubbing alcohol (this was a mama step). Repeat this process for each desired color.
Pour the pasta out onto trays, and get the pasta as flat as it will go so that you can dry it overnight (or for at least 6-8 hours). I usually make little tin foil boats in the tray to separate the colors.
Once the pasta is dry, the pieces will be all clumped together; separate the pasta. If there are still wet sections once the pasta has been separated, allow for some more drying time.
And there you have it: an easy addition to your crafting materials!
