I saw an idea on Pinterest for using pipe cleaners and showing your toddler how to stick them through a colander. I found the idea from sweet happy life
So, I bought some pipe cleaner from the dollar store and put a colander on the floor. Chloe was instantly curious and wanting to get her hands on the pipe cleaners. She was sick with the stomach flu but was feeling better after a nap.
Once I showed her what to do, she was off!
This was a successful activity that my daughter loved. It was the first time she saw pipe cleaners so she thought they were pretty neat. I plan on doing this activity with her more in the future and do colour identifying activities with her.
