Great for toddler fine motor skills. Clean liter bottle etc. fill with pipe cleaner pieces about 1/2 inches long. Make sure to use different colors. Seal container, give child a magnet of some sort. The pipe cleaner pieces follow the magnet. Actually fun to watch.
1. Form pipe cleaners into a snowflake shape or whatever shape you desire, while you boil water. 2. Add water to your mason jar. 3. Mix in 1/3 cup borax. Stir it but don't worry if it isn't completely dissolved. 4. Attach your pipe cleaner shape to the string and hang it from the pen/pencil while submerging it in your jar. Leave overnight Note: DO NOT EAT
