My favorite pipe cleaner activities for kids
Hi. It’s Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com.
This week is all about my favorite pipe cleaner activities for kids.
I love pipe cleaners. They last a long time and can be played with in many different ways. And for some reason they keep my kids entertained for longer than any expensive toys I buy them.
This pipe cleaners and plates quiet activity is really simple and engaging.
You just need plastic lined paper plates and pipe cleaners for your kids to play in different ways.
Then you take the paper plates, poke a few holes in and add them together to a quiet bin.
This puppet making quiet bin is open-ended, meaning there is no right or wrong way to play with it.
Open-ended activities are some of my kids’ favourite activities.
This activity also only needs a few easy to find supplies which won't break the bank.
This activity is a fun way to teach addition (math) to your kids.
You only need beads and pipe cleaners and your kids can play with the beads and pipe cleaners in different ways.
You can add different amounts of beads to each end of the pipe cleaner, and your kids can add the numbers together. Or they can add the beads to the pipe cleaners themselves.
Great for teaching fine motor skills and addition (early math skills).
This pipecleaners stickman activity is so cute, because kids get to copy the printout and bend the stickman according to the printout.
You make the pipe cleaners men and then kids get to bend it in different ways. Free printable included.
If you have a lint roller and some pipe cleaners in your home, you can easily do this activity.
Or just buy some supplies and have an activity that your kids can repeat again and again.
