Default Macaroni Necklace

Supplies needed:
Yarn or thin elastic cording
Uncooked, tube-shaped macaroni
Optional (if you want to color the macaroni): Rubbing alcohol, liquid food coloring, small container, spoon, plastic bags and paper towels

If you want to color the macaroni, mix 2-3 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol with a few drops of liquid food coloring.
Put some of the uncooked macaroni in a plastic bag and add the colored alcohol. Mix so that the liquid colors all the macaroni.

Let the macaroni dry thoroughly on paper towels.

For each necklace, cut some yarn or thin elastic cording enough to make a necklace.
Wrap one end of the yarn tightly with tape to make it easier to string the macaroni.

String one piece of macaroni through the yarn and tie it to one end (this keeps the other beads to be strung from falling off).

String the macaroni through the yarn - leave a few inches so you can tie the necklace off when you are done. Using patterns of colors (like red, yellow, blue, red, yellow, blue, ...) makes a pretty necklace and introduces the students to patterns.
Tie the ends of the string together. Optional: decorate your necklace with glitter or with a marker.
You now have a nice macaroni bead neacklace to wear.
