Tactile play is an amazing way to help your children explore and learn. In this day of play, take 1/4 box of spaghetti noodles and cook them according to directions. Drain and **cool** them.
Put the cooled noodles in a big bowl and let your kids squish around in them.
For Younger Children:
This is perfectly acceptable for little ones but you will need to watch for noodle pieces heading toward the mouth.
For Older Kids:
Give each child their own bowl. Have them wash their hands. Add pasta sauce and an art smock. Presto! Lunch you can play with!
