Pipe cleaner play

This activity has been floating around for quite a while now and as i had a pack of pipe cleaners sat in our craft box since last year and with a sleeping baby and a playful toddler i decided it was time to use them! 
If you've not seen this before then you simply thread pipe cleaners through the holes in a colander. To us, an odd looking contraption but to a toddler it is fascinating! 
Seb spent ages concentrating on this, exploring from inside and out and then worked at pulling all of the cleaners out and putting them back in again.
Great for developing fine motor skills and using hand eye coordination.
