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!
