Pipe Cleaners and Straws

Pipe Cleaners and Straws fine Motor activitiesHere are three fun, unique fine and visual motor activities using pipe cleaners and straws.  Start by having the child cut up straws and some pipe cleaners into smaller pieces.

1. Alphabet:  The straws are the straight lines of letters and the pipe cleaners are the curves.

2.  Modern Colander Art: Stick pipe cleaners into the colander and lace the cut up straws onto the pipe cleaners.

3.  Shapes:  Insert small pipe cleaner pieces into the straws and connect them to make different shapes.  Have fun creating abstract 3D shapes.
