My 16 month old is at the perfect age to start mastering his hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skills but I feel like we wear out the same types of activities every week. So, while playing with playdoh one afternoon we came up with this great activity involving pipe-cleaners and straws!
All you have to do is..
- Bend a pipe-cleaner in half
- Tack it to the table with playdoh
- Give your toddler some cut-up straws and let the stringing begin!
Note: you can buy larger straws (in diameter) at party stores and super stores – or you can save your smoothie straws from Panera like we did! 🙂
