During my stint as a solo parent, I made the executive decision to buy out everything that caught my fancy as I rolled down the aisles of the Dollar Tree. With my Pinterest boards in mind, I tried to grab things that would make for easy activities. You know, anything that is bright, colorful, and that Humnoy will not choke on. For a whole dollar, you get a
bajillion 45 of these chenille stems in a pack at the Dollar Tree. You should already have the only other required material in your kitchen cabinet in this easy toddler activity.
All you need is:
– pipe cleaners
All you do is:
- Put materials in front of kid.
- Model how a pipe cleaner fits into a colander hole.
- Sit back and watch them do it.
Additional ideas for pipe cleaners:
Play dress-up: Shape pipe cleaners into bracelets, necklaces, headbands, or eyeglasses.
Make it on-the-go: Re-use a seasoning/shaker container and trim the pipe cleaners to length and it’s a great activity for car rides or trips.
What other toddler-friendly activities can you do with pipe cleaners?
