On this particular day, our playtime prompt was rainbow pasta. So easy to make (you can find the method here) and with so many ways to play, this is a great activity no matter what the weather.
When I originally colored the pasta, I chose a wide variety of pasta shapes. This led to a lot of talk and discussion of different shapes and sizes, and frankly it's just more fun that way. I threw in a colander, a pasta scoop, ladle, and a couple of bowls. Instant fun!
Zephyr came to check things out, but I assure you that is a yawn and not a gaping maw of terror. He's bored with being cooped up too.
|As usual, scooping and pouring were a big part of this activity.|
|Gotta blow on that pasta to make sure it's not too hot!|
What are you doing with your kiddos to help beat the heat?
