I cooked some spaghetti and put a tiny bit of oil in it so it wouldn't stick. I gave him some glue on plastic wrap and a toothpick. He picked the color of the paper and we began.
I showed him how to put some glue on the toothpick and spread the glue around. He then preceded to lay the noodles down on the glue. All good right?
Baby Bird- why are you eating your art project?????
Even though we had just eaten a nice snack, I couldn't get him to stop eating the pasta! Luckily, he didn't want the glued on type...
We decided to take a break and let the glue dry. I had planned on painting it next but Baby Bird had other plans.
No, he didn't eat the pasta but he sure enjoyed taking it off! (When you take your eyes off of them for 2 seconds)
We tried to make another one the next day but he again wanted to eat the pasta! I managed to take a picture of it before he again, took it apart before we could paint it.
We still had fun and I guess that is what counts.
I found this a difficult medium to work with. When the pasta dried, it was very stiff and made the page curve. If anyone has had success with pasta art, please let me know.
And yes, I feed my son. Quite well. :)
