Put your food colouring into the baggies with some water (we used 1/2 a cup) to help move it around and coat all spaghetti strands.

Once the spaghetti is cooker to your desired softness, place 1/3;1/2;1/4 of the spaghetti (depending on your number of food coloring bags) into the bags, seal them up and make sure they are well sealed before handing them over to the munchkins to go to town squishing and moulding!  The result: colourful spaghetti.

we then used a strainer and COLD water to do a quick rinse to remove the excess food colouring off the spaghetti to avoid added clothing and finger dying mess.

Finished Product- Ooh so delicious and FUN! Using GEL food colouring would make more vibrant colours! Liquid food colouring doesn’t tend to stick as well in my experience.
