Pipe-Cleaner Party

Pipe-Cleaner Party (7)

Here’s an old activity I used to do with Travis, and today was Veronika’s turn. Make your kitchen colander into the prettiest one in the world with pipe cleaner decorations!

I set out a big handful of pipe cleaners and showed Veronika how to poke one down into the colander’s holes.

She took over immediately!

Big brother Travis wanted in on the party, too! He liked making the pipe cleaners into loops instead of simply sticking them out straight.

I challenged the kids to see if they could fill all the holes, which they nearly achieved!

For an extra challenge at the end, I sorted the pipe cleaners around the colander by color. Could Veronika figure out where a few leftovers were supposed to go?

After a bit of prompting, she aced the test! This was a great way to play with common household items, now that colder days have us inside longer hours once more.
