Pipe Cleaner People

Here’s our invitation to play with beads, pipe cleaners and straws.

Finger Puppet Pipe Cleaners

Such a cute and super easy craft to make from One Little Project!

Pipe Cleaner Bubble Wands

My kids love playing with and blowing bubbles. It’s super easy to make pipe cleaner bubble wands - check out this post from What We Do All Day. We made several of these last summer. They’re super easy. We had different thicknesses of pipe cleaners, and it was interesting to see which wands did better. Since we go through a lot of bubble solution at our home, we also occasionally make our own bubble solution.

Pipe Cleaner Ninjas

These are so much fun, and they are super easy. What a fun project from Frugal Fun for Boys!

Discovery Bottle from The Crafty Crow.

This is super easy and fun for kids to do at home.

Pipe Cleaner Heart Shaped Bird Feeder from My Crazy Blessed Life

We love feeding the birds in our backyard. This summer, we have our birdfeeder up and we keep it filled with birdseed, but sometimes we want to put something for the birds to eat in a different part of our yard. This feeder is perfect!

Quick DIY Bunny Ears Ring

This is adorable!! We had some fun making these one rainy afternoon. My daughter wanted one ring for every finger :-) We also made pipe cleaner crowns, sort of like these from Be A Fun Mum.

If you have extra pipe cleaners hanging around, try some of these simple and easy activities. Have a playful day!
