Cheap materials


Method
Set the colander and pipe cleaners out on a little table or at a high chair
Use a variety of colours and textures of pipe cleaner if you can. We used soft chenille ones as well as crispy glittery ones.
Push a few pipe cleaners into some of the holes in the upturned colander to get started
Let your child explore by poking pipe cleaners into different holes, or pulling the pipe cleaners out
