Do you love noodles? Many people do. In fact, a survey released by Oxfam in 2011 declared that pasta is the most popular food around the world. In celebration of this beloved food, March is National Noodle Month. Families can celebrate it with a craft day at the Peoria Public Library.
The Peoria Public Library is holding Oodles of Noodles from 5-6 p.m. on Monday, March 4. This craft event will feature make-and-take projects for people of all ages. Necklaces and collages are a few of the crafts that the library staff has planned for participants. This free activity will be open for one hour or while supplies last.
Oodles of Noodles is being held at the library's Lincoln Branch, which is located at 1312 W. Lincoln Ave., Peoria, Ill. Call 309-497-2600 for information on the event.
After the craft event, your family can keep the celebration going all month long. You can study the history of pasta together, and kids can draw a picture or write a report to show what they learned. Your family can cook and eat a pasta dish; try an old favorite, a new-to-you recipe or this wild spaghetti and hot dog octopus creation. Kids can study a model of the human skeleton, then use a variety of noodle shapes to create a skeleton model on black construction paper.
However you choose to celebrate, don't miss out on the tasty fun of National Noodle Month in March! It's a delicious holiday that your whole family will enjoy.
