Yet another fun way to use coloured macaroni


  • 1 Packet of macaroni pre coloured
  • 1 Packet of pipe cleaners
  • 1 Set of crafty little hands


  1. Dye your macaroni and allow to dry
  2. Thread dried pasta onto pipe-cleaners
  3. Twist ends together to secure bracelet (make sure there are no sharp wire ends pointing out)

Notes... The pipe cleaners are a little more sturdy than string which is great for little ones just developing their fine motor skills
