Rainbow Pasta

My son loves to "make necklaces" with this homemade dyed pasta.  To make, simply place pasta in a ziploc baggie, add rubbing alcohol and food coloring and let it sit overnight.  You don't have to cover the pasta, I just did enough so there was a thin layer on the bottom of the bag.  The next day I opened the bags and let them dry out.  The bags stink horribly when you open them (:

I was able to get a wider range of colors by using vegetable pasta (the ones that are already colored to start with) as well as plain pasta.

I found the recipe for making the pasta at Intrepid Murmurings.
