Macaroni Snowflakes!

Day 1 of the week - The theme this week is Snowflakes. The letters of the week are L, l, T the numbers of the week are 6, 7, 8.
Project -Macaroni Snowflakes- Mix 1/4 cup white paint (I ran out of white so I had to use mostly blue), 2 TB of white school glue and 1/2 cup to 1 cup of wagon wheel macaroni. I dumped the paint, glue and noodles into an old coffee container and let Lauren shake it! Then Lauren made snowflake shapes with the painted macaroni on wax paper (Connor was feeling under the weather today). She also sprinkled the wet snowflakes with white and silver glitter! Make sure you let the macaroni dry for 24 hours. When it is dry carefully remove the snowflakes from the wax paper and string fishing line through to act as a hanger. ***Make sure the noodle are all touching each other. Otherwise, the snowflake will fall apart.***Materials Needed - 1/4 cup white paint, 2 TB white school glue, 1/2 cup to 1 cup of wagon wheel pasta, container to mix in, wax paper, fishing line, white and or silver glitter.
