Pipe cleaners are an incredibly versatile craft supply for kids, so I was happy to see them featured as the craft supply to explore this month in the kids art explorers project at NurtureStore. One way my kids love using pipe cleaners is to string pony beads.
This is excellent fine motor practice for little ones – the pipe cleaner stays still and straight, making it easier to get the beads on, and the fuzzy coating keeps the beads from slipping off.
Emma used the pony beads to make her doll a crown – and then a few other accessories! Allalena is one pampered doll!
