Letter N Activity - Making Noodle Necklaces

N is for necklace and noodles – Noodle Necklace!

Making Noodle Necklaces is a fun activity to introduce young children to learn about the letter N. It is a super simple and fun craft activity to identify what the letter N looks like and what sound it makes.  Making Noodle Necklaces also provides an opportunity to talk about the letter, make connections with spoken language and real life experiences.

Threading pasta into Noodle Necklaces is also a great activity for fine motor development and eye-hand coordination.

  1. Firstly we coloured 10mls of water with 5 drops of colouring and place this into a sealable container.
  2. Add 1 cup of pasta into the sealable container
  3. Placing the lid on tightly shake the container until all pasta coloured well.
  4. Place the wet pasta out onto paper towel to dry. Be sure to spread the wet pasta out well to avoid pasta drying stuck together.
