Through a series of strange events, we ended up with several free packages of spaghetti, and while I'm not generally a proponent of wasting food, this seemed like an activity that might just be worth it for a special treat.
First, of course, the girls had to feel around and get the feel of the stuff with their hands.
Giddy with excitement, they hurried into their swimsuits, plopped into the pool, and exclaimed over the strange, strange feeling of spaghetti under the feet and between the toes. Soon they were piling the stuff on top of one another.
I threw a couple of lasagna noodles in there as well for a little variety. M discovered that the lasagna noodles stuck to her like velcro.
Then what? How are you going to clean it all up? Kind of makes me squeamish. :-)
Just like Patch Adams!
Ha, ha! Haven't actually gotten that far yet :-) I'm planning to gather the spaghetti into bowls and dye it for another activity...stay tuned!
Your girls look like they had a fabulous time! That's what is all about.....FUN!
Did you cook it first or just let it soak up the pool water?
I cooked it. Maybe I could have just let it soak...I don't know.
This is a hilarious idea and looks like something my girls would love! I have a bit of a texture thing so I would probably be cringing, lol. It's great that you let your girls have fun like this :)
This is too funny!
