Here are some of the best pipe cleaner crafts for toddlers:
We’re starting with one of the simplest crafts out there! Simply bend the pipe cleaners into flower shapes and attach them to a headband. They’re great to keep your little girl’s hair out of her face while she plays outside on a windy day, too.
Another simple craft for kids when they’re in the mood for flower-shaped crafts, this one is great to hang up in their bedroom or wherever else they might be playing in the house.
If you build this nature mobile with your child, it makes a perfect preschool science project! It’s also really easy to make – stick some leaves and flowers and other objects you find outside into pipe cleaners and then hang them from a string or ribbon. You can then attach that to a ceiling hook and watch as everything curves downwards.
This caterpillar is another favorite of my son’s – we included it as part of our alphabet work when he was two, and I made a copy of it to help him learn how to draw a caterpillar. They’re pretty easy to make with the right tutorial.
These cute little sack purses are great for toddlers because they can be filled with their favorite snacks! Like the caterpillars above, these are quick and simple to make, so if your child gets bored, you can whip one up in no time at all.
This is another project where preschool children can use these pipe cleaner crafts as an aid when learning about nature – simply watch as they place leaves, flowers, and berries on the branches.
This angel is pretty easy to make compared to others in this list – all you need are pipe cleaners, beads for a halo, ribbon for wings, and a plastic star. It’s also another craft that could be used in church or school, especially if your child likes angels!
This is another great way to use pipe cleaners when you’re in the mood for crafts for kids! This site has detailed step-by-step instructions on making an amazing variety of animals out of nothing more than pipe cleaners and googly eyes.
All of these pipe cleaner crafts are great as craft activities for kids – if you have a small child around the house, it’s worth taking them out of their room and playing together because sharing your interests with your child helps bring you closer. Sometimes being artsy isn’t about how it turns out, but the memories you make along the way!
