Girl Child is loving working with pipe cleaners at the moment. Of course, she really enjoys anything crafty. She’s her mamma’s child! In a search for ideas of what to make with pipe cleaners, I came across the idea of coiled flowers here. It is something easy enough for a 4 year old to make by herself and great fine motor skill practice too. I made the first bend for her and then she coiled the rest of the pipe cleaner around the middle. She did a great job at making a nice tight coil.
We glued the coils to a piece of cardstock. Then we added green pipe cleaner “stems” and some butterfly stickers for fun. Now she has a pretty flower garden card she can give to someone. And she made it herself!
