Some more easy prep, DIY activities to keep your toddler happy and busy.
Did you love the activities shared in my first post on Busy Toddler Activities? Need a couple of fresh ones to keep your toddler entertained? He’ll also love these.
Pipe Cleaner and Straw Activity
Age Level: 2.5+
- Different color straws (Younger children can do this with thicker smoothie straws and more adult supervision). It’s great for fine motor skills!
- Pipe cleaners to match the color of the straws
Cut up straws to about an inch in size.
Tape down the pipe cleaners in a row on a table, floor or even a highchair tray.
Let your child match up the color straw to the pipe cleaner and let them slide it in.
Pipe Cleaner Bracelet Activity
Age Level: 2+
- Pipe cleaner
- Fruit Loops
- Optional: snack cup for traveling.
This is the best activity for so many ages! We also use this as a travel activity. I pack the Fruit Loops in a toddler snack cup which keeps it neat. It lets the kid have fun while in the car without making a mess. It’s fun and delicious too!
You can also keep it ready in a regular cold cup so that you have a ready-to-play activity at home.
Then simply start stringing!
