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.
