Toddler Activity: Pipe Cleaners

I am always on the lookout for things to do with Josie that are quick, entertaining, and not too messy. Considering toddlers and big messes go hand in hand it's definitely not an easy feat. Last week at Office Max (raise your hand if you're obsessed with office supplies!) I picked up a $2 bag of pipe cleaners. We took advantage of Delilahs nap time a couple days ago and brought them out. They were a hit!

We made shapes on the floor, practiced and sorted colors, and made flowers. Josie said the flowers were for daddy so we put them in a vase for when he got home. He said they were beautiful :)
 So simple, so fun. We will definitely be doing this activity again soon!  
*If you decide to do this - do be careful! They poke!*


  1. That is a fantastic idea!! And one of those "why haven't I thought of that" ideas. Lol!! And you're right, very simple, very fun and what toddler wouldn't love colorful sticks that you can bend into any shape?? Next time I am somewhere that sells them I'm going to pick some up!!

  2. That looks like sooooooooo much fun.
