Pipe Cleaner Fun

Try this fine motor activity that uses a simple item you probably already have in the house right now: a plastic water bottle. Add a few pipe cleaners for a fun activity that boosts skills like fine motor skills, visual motor skills, bilateral coordination, and more. 

Fine Motor Skills and Learning Colors with Pipe Cleaners

Baby Girl has been LOVING this library book.
Her favorite word right now is “apple” so she turns to this page and points to the picture and says apple again and again ๐Ÿ™‚
So cute! 

The babies had fun doing a little fine motor activity to go along with the Red page in the book.
 I cut some red pipe cleaners in half and put out an empty water bottle. 

This is great for a Toddler’s Fine Motor Skills, Eye-Hand Coordination, and Cause-Effect. 

They love to put little toys into openings to see what happens.  Putting the brightly colored pipe cleaners into the bottle is so much fun for them!

We started with a bunch of colored pipe cleaners, but I put them away and just pulled out the red ones to go along with the page in the book.  We will definitely be coming back to this activity again, adding different colors…They loved it!

 Such Concentration!

  1. This age loves to put little objects into things, right? I am always finding little toys in our speaker box holes. Silly kids! I think the bottle is a safer option ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I think my toddler would like this game a lot more if he didn't bend every pipe cleaner he comes in contact with. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I bet I could do the same thing with straws though and he will love it. Thanks for the idea!
