pipe cleaner activity!

Looking for toddler activities for Mariella, I found several on this clever pipe cleaner game!  This is a really fun idea and so easy to create.  One thing I did different from the ones I seen is twist the pipe cleaners to have multiple colors.

This doesn’t mean much now, but soon when she start learning colors and numbers I can label the top of the canister with 1, 2, 3  and 4 ~ then twist some with 2, 3 and 4 different colors.  So we can count colors!  We can also color code too!   Plus twisting the pipe cleaners made them stronger.  We can have them straight, I can bend, curl and make different shapes for her to try and put throught the holes.

This is what we did

~used an oatmeal can, covered it with printed paper, then added some sticky foam for fun. 
~removed the oatmeal cardboard top keeping the plastic ring intact, cut a circle from a rubber mat, added holes with a hole punch, then put inside the oatmeal plastic top.
~twisted some pipe cleaners, bending the tops down to avoid the pointy ends.

and ta-daaaa!  :-)
