How To Dye Noodles (For Noodle Necklaces)

The other day I wanted to use colored noodles for a craft in Preschool on St. Patty's Day.  I found a few different recipes, but this one had a couple of good points: it was super easy, and it was edible.  You know, just in case the kiddos take it home and munch on it (and I wouldn't put it past a couple of them).

Colored Noodles

food coloring
dry noodles
ziploc bags

Place some noodles in a baggie.  Pour one teaspoon of vinegar in with the noodles.  Drop 4-5 drops of food coloring in with the noodles, too.  Seal it up and shake those noodles all around until the color is evenly distributed.  On a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, spread the colored noodles out to dry.  When they are dried, string them on some yarn for a colorful (and edible :) necklace.
