Even if it never gets cold where you live, kids can still play in the "snow" -- turning pasta shapes into ornate flakes.
Working on waxed paper, arrange wagon wheels, bow ties and other dried pastas into different geometric patterns.
Then use a toothpick dipped in glue to stick together the pieces of each one. Let the glue dry completely.
Peel away the waxed paper and hang your snowflakes from a window frame or ceiling with ribbon or string.
