Are you ready for another super easy Craft Project for the little ones?  This Macaroni Art Kid Craft was great. Easy, fun, and did not require any special materials.

Easy Macaroni Art Ideas


I just wanted to add a little note to update you about our macaroni art…  

My parents are visiting, and everyone was on our back porch hanging out last evening.  The kids brought their artwork out to show off to Nana and Papa and we accidentally left them outside overnight.  

I came outside this morning to find that the raccoons had a feast out of our macaroni art!  

So, lesson learned…  Never leave your Macaroni Artwork outside!

Materials needed for Macaroni Art:

  • Various dried pasta shapes and beans
  • glue
  • heavier-weight construction paper
  • pencil

I used some household items to trace out the flower and a ruler to create the stick figure.

Then we just used glue to trace out the picture.  Then I just let them loose with the macaroni.  

This project took very little preparation or supervision…

Finished products:

This was supposed to be a skeleton, but somehow it turned into a transformer, with a gun.  

Shocker, I know…  He wants to frame it, I might try to figure something out and surprise him.

While we waited for our macaroni artwork to dry, we treated ourselves to a Princess Luncheon.  We even invited the King. He refused to dress for the occasion.  Shame on him…

  9. What a fun project for the kids – and their pictures turned out sooo well!

    I hope the King was embarrased to be caught in such a casual state of dress on a formal occasion such as this!!

  10. What fun! I will definitely have to do something like this with my boys soon. We are desperate for fun, indoor activities with how hot it is right now.
