Make a macaroni picture frame

Sometimes the classic arts and crafts activities are the best and will never get old.

This can be true for the macaroni picture frame, a simple yet immensely fun way for children to let their creative juices run wild on a lazy summer afternoon.

If you forget, a macaroni picture frame is exactly as it sounds: a plain frame with macaroni glued to the sides of it. Why is this fun? No one really knows, but it's been producing smiles for years.

First off, go through your food pantry and look for open boxes of pasta. You may even discover some forgotten boxes in the back. Ideally, different types of pasta should be represented from the smooth penne to the wacky-looking elbow.

And don't forget rotini, the one shaped like a spiral. Any picture frame worth its muster will employ the use of this unique-looking pasta.

Be sure everyone has a workspace and consider passing out personalized cooking hats to the guests. Though no one is cooking, costumes can bring an extra element of fun (this is true for almost any activity).

Finally, provide the glue and let everyone loose to create a home-made frame they will likely cherish forever.
