Pasta Pets
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

If you're looking for quick fun on a rainy day, just use your noodle -- elbow, bow tie or penne will do -- to make these posable toy animals.

What you'll need

  • Dry pasta
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Glue

How to make it

  1. Create the animal's torso by sliding a few pieces of pasta onto the center of a pipe cleaner. (Wagon wheels are perfect for a chubby belly; rigatoni for a lean one.)

  2. Then, bend the pipe cleaner on both sides of the torso to form a neck and tail. Add more pasta and fold the tips of the pipe cleaner to hold the pieces in place.

  3. Bend the neck (between pastas) into a right angle to form a face.

  4. To attach legs, ears, or horns, twist shorter lengths of pipe cleaner around the body and string them with macaroni. You can even glue on miniature soup pastas for a mane or fur.
