Colanders and Pipe Cleaners and a Toddler

You quite likely already have a colander or two at home, yes?

Pipe cleaners are usually easy to find.

Then go ahead and toss a toddler into the mix (well, toss…try gently place).

Set the creative brain cells loose and let the fine motor skills have at it.

You can certainly make this educational by directing the whole show (find all the green pipe cleaners, count how many orange pipe cleaners there are, clean up, etc.).

Then step back.

Let the toddler step up and direct the show as needed.
