Magic Nuudles

Have you tried these Magic Nuudles? I have seen these before and if we’re being honest here (which we are), I have said no to buying them several times. All I could think of when I saw them was packing peanuts and finding them all over the place. But this weekend at the craft store, I relented and I am kicking myself that I didn’t give them a try earlier. The kids loved building with them and they were so easy for both girls to use. There is no mess, you don’t need glue and if you want to make them disappear, they are totally biodegradable and literally melt in water. I didn’t want to encourage wasting them but of course we had to see if they really did melt away and they did!The way they stick together is so cool. The trick is to really follow the directions and only tap them with water. You can’t get them too wet. I cut a sponge in half, wet it and then squeezed out the excess. I gave a sponge and a paper plate to each girl, put a bowl of nuudles in between them and they got busy building. They ended up working on both of these together. They said they were Whoville from Horton Hears a Who. I can see that!
