Spaghetti painting

Defne got very excited with the idea of spaghetti painting. Spaghetti painting is a sensory activity as well as one that fosters creativity.

I cooked some spaghetti, squeezed some paint (red and blue) on a tray.

I love the messy hands

She enjoyed squeezing the pasta and playing with it.
We also talked about the colours, how red and blue turned into purple.
This time using a black paper

and here are the finished paintings:I really like how they turned out.

This looks like marble painting
This is also very pretty.  Defne wanted to stick some spaghetti on this one.
