DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Colored Macaroni

Contributed by Leanne Guenther


In a ziploc bag or bowl, pour in enough rubbing alcohol so the noodles are lightly covered but not soaking (about 2 to 4 Tbsp)

Add a lot of food coloring to each bowl (I actually prefer paste as I find it colors darker).  Use a separate bag/bowl for each color.

Add the desired amount of macaroni (this depends on how many kids/crafts you're making).

Mix them up (or shake the ziploc bag) and let sit a couple of minutes.

Once the noodles have reached the desired color, remove them from the baggie or bowl and lay them in a single layer on aluminum foil or waxed paper to dry.

Making the colored noodles is messy and food color doesn't come out of clothes well...  The shaking part can be done by kids (if you use a ziploc bag), but the rest should be done by an adult.
