Boredom Busters... Pipe Cleaners

Pipe Cleaners and a Spaghetti strainer. Amazing that a few little things can be so entertaining! 

If your tots have some coordination and some fine motor skills (which this will definitely help build) then grab a few supplies from your cupboard and craft supplies. I got a bunch of pipe cleaners from Kmart for two dollars. Not a big investment for a bunch of simple fun.

 Show the Kids how to poke it through, then let them at it. No rules. They even tried it on as a hat.

 Milla designed some awesome twirly ones

Phoenix tasted Millas awesome twirly ones ha!

Handy Tip: Don't keep these kind of activities out all day. 
I give it about 30 mins and then pack it up or change it to something else. So that I can bring it out another day and it will still be interesting.

Pulling them out was Phoenixes favourite... Milla wasn't impressed with his hap-hazard ways
