My kids really enjoy playing with pipe cleaners so I thought that this pin from Family Fun Magazine would be great. I showed them the pin and they took the materials and got creative. It turned more into an invitation to play than pipe cleaner people, but that was fine with me. I was glad they were having fun and getting along. My daughter made a circle family, here is her description -
My son made a sword, some circles and this cute little creature.
My daughter eventually decided to make a person more like what she saw in the pin. Here's the result.
They were entertained with the materials for a while, almost an hour. I loved seeing all the creativity!
Do your kids have a material they love? Let me know, I'd love to hear about it!!
