Fine motor activity: oatmeal canister and pipe cleaners

For me these were all things just sitting around my house. I just took the knife and stabbed it into the lid and twisted a little. Then I gave the children the pipe cleaners and let them put them into the holes! 

For Caliger who is 21 months I ended up needing to make the holes a little larger. C who is 2.5 yo quickly figured out how to put them in the tiny slits. 

 That’s the modified holes forcaliger. 

C made the canister have a funky hair

And Caliger likes to push them all the way through into the canister.

I got a good 30 minutes out of this activity. And if I wasn’t posting it on my blog I might’ve been able to do dishes!😉
