Quiet Activity - Pipe Cleaners!

Since I am on bed rest I have had to come up with a few more quiet activities than I usually do.

Here is one that we used to do in the schools, and I forgot how much toddlers love it!

Here is what you need:
A handful of pipe cleaners and a strainer! That's it!

 even my 8 month old was into this activity!
 In the holes the pipe cleaners go!

This was perfect for what I needed it to be...20-30 minutes of pure concentration, quiet time and fine motor building.

So easy, and fun.  I will be bringing this out again!


  1. This is such a great idea! Can't wait to try it with my 2 year old. I hope it holds her focus for 20 minutes...she seems to have a 3 minute attention span. I absolutely adore your blog and feel inspired everytime a read another post. x

  2. My daughter loved this one. she calls it "sticks" :)
