Learning through play – Pipe Cleaners and Colander Fine Motor Play

Pipe cleaners has a lot of purpose in homeschooling but one of my favorite is using it for fine motor activity.
After setting up a pile of pipe cleaners and a colander.I showed to Isabelle and Inigo how to insert the pipe cleaners into the holes. They were immediately intrigued by the activity and set to work exercising their fine motor skills.   This activity also exercises hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills, and requires the kids to focus on the task at hand. I loved watching them working together and enjoying at the same time.
