A great idea for toddlers!
I think my son sat in one spot for at least 30 minutes with only a strainer and pipe cleaners. :)
At 17 months it took a lot of concentration to get the pipe cleaner in one of the holes of the strainer but he DID it! :) I did have to do hand over hand a couple times but then he figured it out. This activity is also an awesome fine motor skill. We worked on the pincer grasp and holding the pipe cleaner at the end so it would be easier to put in the hole of the strainer.
He also had a ton of fun simply waving the pipe cleaners. He also seemed to really enjoy pulling the pipe cleaners out of the strainer.
Shortly after Titus was done his sister came home from school and was very excited to play with them too. Then it became a game of Selah putting the pipe cleaners in the strainer and Titus pulling them out.
I really enjoyed this visual for Color Street Application! So far Nail it With Selah and April is going great! We are eager to help you get your nails pretty or sparkly or both! If we can do it then that means anyone can do it! Look at the fun Easter Colors!!!! Which one is your favorite? Chicks or bunnies? Check all the other designs here!
St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
