Snapshot: Pipe Cleaners
Lena's dexterity has come on leaps and bounds recently, as has her ability to really sit down and focus on a task. Since the success of the 'push the mini pom poms through a little hole made in the lid of a Tupperware box' I was looking for another little activity that would keep her amused. Behold! the wonder that is threading pipe cleaners into colander holes. Lena gets given the whole pack of pipe cleaners and here is where the many phases of activity excitement begins. She firstly gets to empty the whole packet out in a flurry of fluffy multi-colour wonderfulness. She then gets to point out colours, grab clumps of them, un-grab clumps of them, thread them through the holes, un-thread them, and then feed them into the bag at the end for 'tidy up.' This is by far the best £1.50 I have spent in a long time.
