Simple Pasta Flower Craft

Simple flower craft

I was cooking dinner a few nights ago, and I couldn't help but see in my mind's eye a flower made of wheel pasta (sad, I know- perhaps a side effect of Pinterest??).  I raided my pantry for more pasta that might serve as stems and leaves, and soon after dinner I got to work dying it all.  Here's what you need if you would like to make your own...



Wheel pasta in various colors (petals):

Spaghetti noodles (stems):

Penne pasta (leaves):

To organize,  I made up a tray for the kids with things they might use to create a spring/summer scene:

Paper, the pasta, and a few embellishments:  shredded paper Easter grass, yellow circles (sun), and torn cotton (clouds).  The cotton swabs are on there to pull apart for more clouds and to use for applying glue.

    1. I just used regular white school glue. Sometimes I pour a little out on a paper plate and the kids use cotton swabs to apply it- works great!
