You’ve probably figured out by now that I’m all about inexpensive and simple activities for my boys that combine learning and fun, and pipe cleaners are a frequent favorite with us. You can get tons of them from the dollar store in various colors to provide hours of fun doing all kinds of activities.
This particular activity doesn’t even need any extra materials, just pipe cleaners. I pulled out about 5 pipe cleaners in various colors and then cut them into smaller lengths of different sizes. So we had lots of little pieces in each color, some longer than others, that we could match up and make things with. Then I just tossed them on the floor, and we got started.
