From our Sensory Play Messy Class for Preschoolers and Toddlers: Worm Painting with Spaghetti and Edible Paint Art
Sensory Play is a great way to help preschoolers learn. It also helps with disorders of the Autism spectrum when the child is allowed to explore the subject matter on their own without being pushed. This activity is messy, squishy, fun, and even edible! Enjoy!

How to Make Spaghetti for Sensory Paint Play
- Cook up a batch of Spaghetti
- Strain it and pat it dry
- Mix some Edible Paint (Vanilla Pudding Paint with Gel food coloring works best with the Noodles but you can also try kool-aid paint and milk paint for other projects.)
- Prepare to get Messy!
- Swirl the Spaghetti in the paint, then onto your paper.
Next, I gave each child a spaghetti noodle to study. Then, we stood up pretending we were squigly spaghetti noodles. Oops, spaghetti can't stand up, so we fell to the floor and squirmed like worms. We finished up with a game of Duck, Duck, Goose but why not try Worm, Worm, Catepillar?
Painting was a huge success. The sticky spaghetti is so fun, enjoy!
