What You’ll Need

Small white paper plate

Red tissue paper

4 large brown poms

Yellow string/yarn

Plastic fork


What You’ll Do

To start, cut red tissue paper into squares and rectangles, and glue them onto the paper plate.

Next, cut as much yarn as you’d like to create a pile of spaghetti. I just glued a few sections at a time. You do not have to glue the entire yarn down.

Then, glue each pom pom “meatball” onto the middle of the spaghetti.

To make the spaghetti on the fork, just wind the yarn around the fork and tuck the end in the back.

You can glue to the plate or keep it free so the child can pretend to eat the spaghetti.

Have fun making this plate of spaghetti!
