Pasta Play

Pasta Play (4)

Looking for the perfect sensory game for your baby? Look no further than cooked pasta from your pantry! As soon as your baby can pick up food and chew, you can safely play this texture game.

I cooked a batch of rotini pasta, figuring the swirls and ridges would make for the most exciting texture. Let cool completely, then set out a bowl or strainer of the pasta for your little one. It helps to have a blanket underneath – this game is about to get messy!

First we simply talked about texture. I used words like soft, squishy, and cool to describe the noodles that she pulled up by the handful.

Picking up individual pieces is great for developing her pincher grip.

She also loved scattering them about on the blanket.

And of course a few made their way up to her mouth!

In sum, this is simple fun, as cheap as it comes and perfect for kicking off a summer of play!
