Hands-On Toddler Activity #25: Pipe Cleaner Painting

I'm always on the lookout for new art projects and some are inevitably more successful than others. As an alternative to painting with paint brushes we gave pipe cleaners a try. I twisted some pipe cleaners into a snowflake/flower/fireworks/whatever you want to call it/ shape. Then pressed it into paint with the intention of using it to stamp a design on the paper. It didn't go as smoothly as expected though. Three year old Jack preferred more of a smearing technique and got bored with it really quickly. Oh well, maybe we will revisit this one again some day down the road.
