Fortrose babies enjoy spaghetti play

Babies, toddlers and parents recently had great fun exploring coloured spaghetti at Fortrose Infant Feeding Support Group. The group is run by the lovely Lana, on a Monday morning, in Fortrose Free Church of Scotland.

The coloured spaghetti was easily made by cooking spaghetti, rinsing it in cold water, then adding a little cooking oil and food colouring.

Some fantastic imaginative play developed as toddlers enjoyed ‘cooking’ spaghetti and making dinner!

The spaghetti also made a brilliant bird’s nest for one little girl’s toy bird, and she quickly discovered that individual strands made good worms for feeding her bird!

Even the youngest babies at the group were fascinated, and had great fun exploring strands of spaghetti!

Some of the best fun of all was had by one little boy who had never explored spaghetti in this way before!

His excitement and delight as he explored this new experience was just the most amazing thing to be a part of. This is what messy play is all about!
