Pasta drawings

Updated: Jun 23

In these difficult times, I really want to help some way, so I thought that I could post some cute pasta drawings to inspire you and your children to make a fun project together.

You could use different colours’ dough (maybe every member of the family could be in charge of one colour) or just one color dough.

Making pasta It's a great skill to learn and with time on our hands and with the kids off school for the foreseeable future, this just might be a way to not only feed them and your family, but to learn a new skill together - Bond over something new and enjoy the fruits of your labour at the end of it.

Have fun!!!
