Preschool Crafts: Macaroni Necklace

Nathan and I have so much fun hosting preschool every month.

These colourful macaroni necklaces are from our recent "M" day.

Dyeing the macaroni is just as much fun as making the necklaces themselves.

How to make a Macaroni Necklace:

Get a bag of pasta. I suggest using something bigger than macaroni, especially for younger kids. We used Rigatoni.

Add 5-15 drops food colouring to 1 cup of rubbing alcohol. Add 1 cup of pasta to the liquid, and stir it around a bit until it's all coated. I let it sit in the colour for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain on paper towels until dry.

String coloured pasta onto yarn.


  1. what a're a super fun for Nathan and the crew!!! love Aunt Heather

  2. Good idea, another preschool idea I'll be stealing from you, thanks! Your comment on my blog this morning made me laugh. Definitely watch Mean Girls, but not for lessons on being a fun mom and not with Samantha either, just for pure entertainment.


I love hearing from you! :)
