Summer Fun! Macaroni Necklace

I’ve learned that Macey loves to color and make things.  So I thought she would enjoy making colorful macaroni necklaces.  I was right, she loved it.  I took pictures to share with you in case you’ve never colored macaroni before.  Here’s what you need to make them:

Rubbing alcohol,  food dye (neon is fun!), macaroni and dishes to mix them in.

You just pour the alcohol (about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup) into each dish and then squirt in as much food color as you want.  Mix it up with forks and then pour your macaroni in very carefully so you don’t splash yourself.

Once we got the color that we wanted we put them onto a cookie sheet to dry.  The good thing about rubbing alcohol is that it doesn’t take very long to dry.  The bad thing was I had to open the window, it smelled too strong!

Once they were dry we just strung them onto yarn.  Macey had a lot of fun.  As she was making them she kept saying, “Grammy’s going to love this one.”  I hope she doesn’t expect Grammy to wear it around town.  Funny kid!
