The kids love mixing up stuff and pretend baking with real food, so I put together this fun spaghetti play.
First you need to cook the spaghetti noodles, I cooked the whole pack, but you don't need to. Then I mixed up a red kool-aid packet with salt for the kids to make the sauce(once you add alittle water when playing it turns the pasta red like the sauce does). Then I crushed up old graham crackers to make parmesan cheese(saved the parmesan cheese container to put it in, so it seemed real). Last, we got a small thing of play-doh(brown) and made meatballs.
Mix all together and have at least a hour, if not more of play for less than $5.00.
They had a blast doing this, and I had fun playing with them. J was serving me spaghetti and we made the meatballs together.
You can get everything you need from The Dollar Tree, great resource for cheap play cooking items for the kids.
