Crafts from pasta with their own hands can make even the youngest lovers of creativity. Often, pasta is one of the first materials that children learn in kindergarten and at home: first they learn to sort them out, sorting them by size and shape, and then they start to create different pictures and volumetric figures from them.
The creation of such crafts does not imply the constant and direct participation of an adult – the educator can simply explain the course of work and observe the process, which children usually cope on their own.
The simplest crafts from pasta for children are applications using a key element made according to a pattern. For gluing pasta it is better to use transparent stationery glue or glue gun.
Applique classes are useful for preschoolers. They form perseverance, attentiveness, patience, and help to develop fine motor skills, as well as the imagination of kids. Applications are made from a variety of materials. Often, not only colored paper, plasticine, cotton wool is used, but also more exotic materials: cereals, seeds or colorful pasta!
