Alphabetti Spaghetti!

Spaghetti smileOn Saturday I saw these quotes in a restaurant – 

Sophia Loren said “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti”

and Christopher Morley (?) said ” No man is lonely eating spaghetti, it requires so much attention”.


Anyway, they got me thinking about spaghetti … and I’ve remembered a game I haven’t played for years.

SpaghettiYou will need: a referee, children, 2 bowls of Alphabetti Spaghetti and a list of words.

First be prepared for MESS!

Now, give each child/ team a bowl of alphabetti spaghetti and call out a word they have to spell. The first child/team to manage wins!

And as a bonus lunch is already on the table! (groan) As you can see Joe did spend a lot of time licking his fingers and eating ‘words’!

    I want to play! Sadly neither of my kids will touch the stuff… but mummy it’s got pom-ato. Pehaps it’ll be me versus hubs, and I am a MUCH better speller than him!

    Very fun idea! My kids would love this, but I’d have to be in the right mood . . . cause it would be real messy at our place!!

    Here I am hot on Sharyn’s heels – I have a Joe too – and he would be such a messer with this I would not be game to try! and he is eight!
