Pasta Sorting Game

Gather up some fun shapes of dried pasta, from skinny tubes of penne to fat, ridged rigatoni; from big, fat shells to squirmy rotini or curvy elbows. Put them all in a bowl and, with your toddler, take them out one by one and sort by types. If she gets bored too quickly, you can always zip the collection into a baggie for another time.
