- Dried pasta
- Measuring cups
- Mixing spoons
- Give your child containers filled with various sizes and shapes of dried pasta, such as macaroni, rotini, shells, and so on.
- Add a few empty bowls, measuring cups, and a mixing spoon or two, and let your child measure, mix, and match.
- If you like, give your child string and let him make necklaces, bracelets, ornaments, and other objects. (Supervise young children to avoid strangulation.)
- For a variation, try using cereal, dried beans or rice in place of pasta.
