Spaghetti knots

Using spaghetti as a training aid is a cheap training aid.  A method of not having to remember to replace bits of string. This is a fun but  messy learning activity.

Cook the spaghetti. While cooking add a very little bit of oil. The oil enables the spaghetti to not bind together in a clump which in turn makes this a usable training aid.

Practice the knots with the cooked spaghetti and let these knots dry out.

To have different colors add a small half drop of vegetable dye while cooking the spaghetti.  When the spaghetti is dry you have your different colours easily making the ‘string’ practicing at home easier to follow.

P.S. do not over do the food dye as it will stain the hands, clothes and so forth if there is too much liquid around the spaghetti when tying!
