Noodles & Pipe Cleaners

This activity is great for sensory play, developing fine motor skills, and hand eye coordination.

What you need:

  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Noodles or Beads

We do this activity with string as well, but for beginner stringers pipe cleaners work much better to limit the frustration a limp string brings. Pipe cleaners stay stiff so your little one can thread the beads or noodles with limited difficulty.

If your little one is still struggling with threading a pipe cleaner, encourage them to move their hand closer to the end of the pipe cleaner to have better control.
