DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Macaroni Sunshine Craft

Macaroni sunshine craftContributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a good project to use for children who are practicing their scissor skills. The sunshine is a large shape with zig zag cuts -- a good practice shape for cutting.

It's easy to make your own colored rice, colored macaroni or other pasta shapes (instructions are included) and you can store it indefinitely once you've made it. I find the dried pasta less messy for the kids to use than rice is.

Alternatively you can use dried cereal like fruit loops or cheerios.
