FIREWORKS!! Neat idea - Dip your pipe cleaner in the paint and stamp away! I told the kids to stamp in the same spot. After they lift the pipe cleaner up, turn it a little and stamp again. And repeat the process with a new color.
pipe cleaners and strainer for busy time. Make sure your colander has large enough holes. 2yo liked pushing each pipe cleaner all the way through. Pipe cleaner ends kept jabbing him. No interest in making designs yet.
