This is such a simple, affordable activity, suitable for age 3+, great for developing fine motor skills - the younger the child, the bigger the holes in the pasta for easy threading! We all did this outdoors at wood school today, it was lovely and sunny. All you need is shirring elastic, a pair of safely scissors and pasta - delis do all manner of interesting circle and tube shaped pasta - and pasta is so much cheaper than buying beads!
