With a small leftover batch of spaghetti and a few of our printable shape mats, my toddler and preschooler worked on fine motor skills, shapes and color recognition, and had a bit of sensory play!

To set up this activity, warm up a batch of leftover spaghetti or make a small fresh batch.

Print and laminate our shape mats.

This activity can also work on snack time, too!

If spaghetti noodles aren't your thing, simply use the shape mats with various loose parts or play dough.
