Need Short Tube Noodles For School Art Projects

Recommended Posts

My 3yo daughter's preschool teacher asked for noodles to be sent in for C to use for art projects (stringing necklaces and such). I sent in quinoa macaroni noodles, but they're too curved for little fingers to be able to thread a string through.

I need to find short little straight tube noodles -- or even a plastic replacement. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Trader Joes has a rice penne. I don't like the way it tastes, but it would be great for stringing :P

Replacement...you can cut up drinking straws, they even make colored ones if you can find them. Also look for the ones that don't bend on the end or you may have to cut it off. Try the $ store too. Some are bigger than others so keep your eye out, the smaller ones will be harder to push the string through. We used to use them at my day care and they don't break.

What about using perler beads? They're probably exactly the right size and the holes are large enough for a 3 year old to string relatively easily.
