Sugar Aunts: Pipe Cleaner Fun

Pipe Cleaner Fun

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 :)
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. My youngest daughter loves these kinds of activities. She will sit and sit for extended periods of time playing with them. We'll have to give this one a try.

    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 :)

  2. What great guys love this sort of activity...your pics are wonderful xx

  3. Thank-you for letting me know about your cute party!

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

    1. Straws would be an excellent idea! You'll have to let us know how it goes :)

  5. Such a great way for a baby/toddler to explore colors and learn about cause and effect.

  6. Oh, how fun!! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!
