Pasta Christmas Ornaments

First Grade Arts & crafts Activities: Pasta Christmas Ornaments

What You Need:

  • Dry pasta
  • Glue
  • White paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter glue
  • Thin ribbon


What You Do:

  1. Have your child start by arranging a handful of pasta in cool patterns to find out which sides to glue together.
  2. Once the pasta is in a pretty shape, glue it together. Let it dry completely.
  3. Paint the pasta snowflake with white paint.
  4. While the paint is still wet, you can apply glitter! Once the front is dry, your child can flip it over to do the same to the other side.
  5. Locate a hole in between the pieces of pasta and string a ribbon through to create a loop.

Older children can experiment with snowflakes made with several layers of pasta!
