Cooking with pasta


With the weather still wet and dreary in Perth โ˜”๏ธ, we needed an inside activity this morning.
I placed a basket full of dry pasta along with items from our @ikea_australia kids cooking set.
My 3yo had lots of fun scooping, pouring, making a shaker plus using the tongs to pinch and transport the pasta from the basket to her pots and pans. Apparently, on today's menu was 'chocolate mousse' ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

This is a really great #invitationtoplay activity that I can leave out and my daughter can come and go as she pleases ๐Ÿค—

You can easily swap the dry pasta for rice or other legumes (be mindful of little ones with the smaller pieces ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป) but I find pasta is great for the interesting shapes, textures and sounds ๐Ÿ’š
