DIY Churro Action Figures

On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you love churros? I’m definitely sitting at a 10 – if churros are around, there is no question that I’m eating them! I invite my friends over for a Cinco de Mayo potluck every May, and I am eagerly awaiting the excuse to have a bunch of churros for dessert.

Until then, I decided to celebrate one of my all-time favorite desserts by turning them into action figures! It occurred to me that penne, manicotti, and other ridged pastas look a lot like churros so I gave them a quick makeover, and voila! Wouldn’t this be a fun craft to do with kids on Cinco de Mayo?

Step 3
Use a paintbrush to apply lines of white glue into the ridges of the pasta. Sprinkle glitter over the glue – we used a mix of copper, gold, and white to imitate the look of sugar. Repeat until all the ridges are glittered and let dry.
