Messy Mondays: Coloured spaghetti

Today we had some sensory fun with some coloured spaghetti. We added some pink and green food colouring to cooked spaghetti and popped it in our messy tray and then my mindee got stuck in feeling the contents of the tray.

“It’s sticky”, “It’s wet” “it’s yummy” and “it’s like wiggly worms” he said.

He loved squeezing it in his hands, wrapping it around his hands and fingers and holding it up high and letting it drop again.

This was a very simple, open-ended, sensory activity which appeals to children because of the bright colours and the satisfying texture.
