While we really don’t like wasting food – any of it, even with our best efforts, sometimes there’s an opened packet of pasta in the back of the cupboard that seems to everyone all forgot. Instead of throwing away pasta, why not use it creatively?

We found cool ways to use these spirals and create a lion, sun, sunflower and a snake.

This is a great summer craft, especially as a summer camp project.
