FURTHER DISCUSSION:

This is a great classroom project for preschool and kindergarten children! Pour glue onto paper plates to share. Have children practice dipping the pasta to practice their fine motor skills and use a brush to practice their sense of control. Tip: adults and teachers, make sure to have hand wipes accessible for easy clean up. You can also cut the foam hats ahead of time for Step 11.
