Pipe Cleaners Challenge - Part 1

Wednesday, 18 September 2013

Today the sun is shining and its beautiful outside, however little Button isn't quite herself so is fast asleep in bed and Buddy wont go outside unless it's to the park so until their dad comes home it is crafty mum time. 
First a quick search in our arts and crafts box and see what we can find. Pipe cleaners, an old friend from our childhood and so many different ways to use them.  What ways you ask, well challenge accepted and our first project: Pipe Cleaner Magnet Fun!

What you'll need:
  • Pipe cleaners of course, any colour you want
  • Scissors
  • Magnets, bigger the better (I had smaller round ones but I made it work)
  • Empty jar or tub 

Firstly, you don't have to do this unless you have the same reasons as I did. I tied some string through the magnet so when it was dropped on the floor I would know if Button had it, also its not so easy for her to swallow now. 

We then cut up the pipe cleaners, Buddy had fun choosing which colours we were going to use and trying to cut them up. 

Throw them into the jar, hold the magnet up to the side and watch them cling. We also had fun dropping the magnet in and ending up with a big ball, trying to pick up one at a time which Buddy learned quick was not so easy and taking them out /putting them back using only the magnet. 

Well, that's what we did for half an hour, what to do next! :)
