Sensory Pasta – Mixed Neon, Set of 3


Sensory pasta, yes please! Add a dash of colorful textured fun to your play or arts and craft adventures.

Why sensory pasta, you ask? Well, let us tell you.

Using sensory pasta adds a different form of exploration and creativity to your little one’s play. It’s so much more than just a cute bin! Sensory play using pasta encourages children to dig their hands into varying textures, to explore with sound as they scoop, pour, and drop, and to learn as they sort colors, identify shapes, and count! It may seem simple, but sensory pasta is a powerhouse of learning through play.

Each sensory purchase comes with a Diversity Cues handout that gives you easy-to-incorporate ideas about how to take your play to the next level. At Our Friends Afar, we believe that all play can be inclusive play and we make this goal tangible.

Each baggie comes with approximately one cup of pasta. These Montessori inspired toys can be used as loose parts, bin fillers, color sorting and number manipulatives, and more. They fit perfectly with the Ikea sensory table.

Some benefits of sensory play include language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving, social interactions, hand-eye coordination, exploration, creativity, imagination, and more.

To incorporate pasta play, you can talk about how things move, feel, smell, talk about details, cause and effect, you can incorporate colors, shapes, sight words, counting, comparing, measuring, sorting, scooping, filling, emptying, capacity, estimation, themes, and more. You can even create art masterpieces using the pasta. The possibilities are endless.

There are no special storage requirements for sensory pasta. It does not expire. Sensory pasta cannot be used with water.

Note: Each bag is homemade and made to order. Your actual colors may differ slightly from what you see here. Sensory pasta is not meant to be eaten. All sales are final. Adult supervision is required.

Feel good about your purchase. Ten percent of profits from all Our Friends Afar sales will be donated to RAICES, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. Did you know that immigrants facing deportation in immigration court do not have the right to a lawyer if they cannot afford one. No matter what your political views are, I am sure you feel the same: that is not okay; that is not America. I imagine you too are heartbroken for these separated families and children in detention centers. Hopefully our donations can play a role in helping these families and individuals.
