Spaghetti Noodle Lacing

Spaghetti Noodle Lacing is a fun activity that develops fine motor skills, patterning, pretend play, counting, and more! Easy to set up.

Materials: Playdoh, spaghetti noodle, other noodles or cheerios for lacing

Stick a spaghetti noodle upright in a chunk of playdoh and use it to string other noodles or cheerios. B had a lot of fun with this and it is great for motor skill development. As you can see we got carried away and made a lot of these. We also used this for working with patterns.

    I’m going to do it as soon as they wake up! I love it! P.S. The light is working better and better everyday! I heard Caden say on the monitor “No Drakey, it’s still ni ni time” and Drakey said, “OK”. Love it!

    This is a great idea! It would also teach about using “careful” hands so that you do not break the noddles. D can use some practice on that!

    That’s an AWESOME idea! I’m sharing this post on my FB page 😛

    We definitely need to try this. I’ve tried stringing activities, but have never really succeeded – I think the raw spaghetti (and the PlayDoh!) might do the trick!

    I love this idea. I think in our house there might be quite a lot of broken spaghetti sticks but i’m going to give this a go anyway.

    This looks so fun for a toddler. I’ve got to pin it so I remember to do it! Also shared it on my FB page. Thanks!
