how to dye noodles for rainbow sensory play


rainbow noodles

Cooked noodles are so much fun for a sensory play. Dye them in rainbow colors and let the amusement begin.

Boil the noodles as instructed on the box, better al dente so they are not sticky or coat them with a touch of oil. Divide them into bowls for each color. Mix with the food coloring, (I always recommend the wilton icing gel to save yourself from stains) and let them dry for 15-20 mns. Now they are ready for play!

I wanted this experience to be even more fun, I packed the rainbow noodles in a plastic container and head to Aspire park, one of the beautiful parks in Doha.

For the first 10 minutes, the rainbow remained  intact. He was just contemplating the beautiful rainbow. So we decided to take it out of the container to start playing.

More squeezing and squashing were expected but my boy was a bit repelled since he is not used to touch food with his hands, my mistake for having OCD tendencies 🙂 so i decided to participate in the play to encourage him.
