Fun with Pipe Cleaners

My four year old wanted to color but her 14 month old brother kept bugging her.  So I thought I would try an activity I saw on No One Has More Fun Than the Adams.  All it took was pipe cleaners that we already had and a colander.   My son was only interested in pulling them out and throwing them in the air but my daughter had a ton of fun with it and totally abandoned coloring.

It started off small enough…

and then it grew…

and grew…

She called it her pokey, pokey hat 🙂  She also got pretty creative trying to make shapes with the pipe cleaners and then use a second pipe cleaner to hook the triangle onto the “hat”.  I was also a little surprised when she made the observation that it was funny how the pipe cleaner fit in all the holes, even the smallest ones near the bottom.  She figured it was because the pipe cleaners were soft and could squish through the small holes.

Here was the final product.
