Pipe Cleaner Fine Motor Activity

Once again I was in search for a new activity that promoted fine motor development. In all honesty it’s kind of scary how coordinated my son is when it comes to his fine motor skills (I don’t know how long certain child proof measures will last…), but that’s all the more reason to find something that occupies his little fingers.

Here’s an activity that’s  super easy to put together, appropriate for quiet time, no mess to clean up afterward, and encourages fine motor coordination.

It is as simple as a pile of pipe cleaners and a colander. Not only was my son intrigued by the challenge of putting the pipes through the holes, but he also discovered that it makes a silly hat as well!
