Give George and Abe a new cut and color in honor of Presidents’ Day with this activity.
What you’ll need:
- The Washington and Lincoln coloring pages (900 KB pdfs)
- Uncooked noodles, a variety of shapes and sizes makes this fun
- White glue
- Optional- rubbing alcohol and food coloring (see Step 1)
Step 1: If you want to dye your pasta different colors like we did, place the raw noodles in a ziploc bag with 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol and ten drops of food coloring. Let the color set for an hour or more. Then spread the colored noodles on a cookie sheet and let dry.* Follow this link for a more detailed tutorial.
Step 2: Print out the Washington and Lincoln coloring pages. Click on the pictures to download.
