This wearable craft activity has it all — fine motor skills, threading, patterns, colours, counting and shapes.
You can make a cool Nudelkette (pasta chain for a necklace, bracelet or anklet) at home with pasta and string or wool. If you like, you can even colour your pasta with coloured markers/textas. You can download Gerda’s Nudelkette instructions in German (with English translations) here.
If you don’t have noodles at home, you can substitute cereal like Cheerios (or order suitable pasta for your next click-and-collect / home delivery of groceries!)
Tip: To make threading less frustrating, wrap some tape around the threading end of your wool to make it stiffer and easier to poke through a noodle. Tape up a little bit more wool than your longest noodle (about 5cm, say).
We especially like that the craft items are all biodegradable and reusable (except for the sticky tape, sorry).
Looking forward to seeing your crafty creations on a future online meeting, perhaps!
