Learn How to Make a Outdoor Scene Using Pasta

 

For this craft you will need:

What you need to make a pasta scene

  • pasta bows (bring other type of noodles for girls to get extra creative with scene)
  • blue and yellow cardboard or card stock (You can do other colors as well depending on what type of scene your girls want to make)
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • google eyes
  • markers

How to make your outdoor pasta scene

Step 1: First, draw a circle on the yellow cardboard. This is going to be the sun so you can decide if it is going to be bigger or smaller. Cut the circle using scissors and glue it on the blue cardboard using hot glue gun.

Step 2: Start gluing the pasta bows around the sun as a rays. You can paint them but they are kind of yellow and the sun is the same color so you don’t really have to paint them.

Step 3: Glue the googly eyes on the sun and draw a face on it using black marker or pen to finish the look of the sun.

Step 4: Now, paint a few bows in different colors and glue them around the sun on the same cardboard. Those are going to be butterflies.

Step 5: After you glue them draw a trace line for where butterfly is flying with black dots using a marker and antennas on the butterflies. For painting I’ve used acrylic markers but you can use any type of markers or colors that you think will work good for this project.
