Cereal and Pipe Cleaner Time

Toddler ages: 24 months, 24 months, 3.5 years

Materials you'll need:
-Fruit Loops or Cheerios
-pipe cleaners

Instructions: Have your toddler(s) place the cereal onto the pipe cleaner. This activity is best done in conjunction with snack time.

Here is the fun....

...the 3-year-old boy...

...Twin A...

...Twin B...

Note of caution: Pipe cleaners can poke tender tongues, so have your toddlers sit down if they decide to eat the cereal off the pipe cleaners. No injuries occured during our activity, but I realized there is potential.



  1. This is a great idea! I’m starting a new MckLinky party called TOT TUESDAYS next week. I’d love it if you’d stop by & share your ideas. Here’s the information & my new buttons: Cheers, Jenn

  2. Loved this one! We were asked if my son could (at his 3 year well child visit) lace beads... well, with the little babies, I haven't wanted to have beads around so I tried this instead! Yay! He really enjoyed it and bent the pipe cleaner into bracelets too!

  3. I love your pictures! It kills me that the boys are often in their pajamas! I love knowing my so who is 2 is not the only one who stays in his pajamas a lot!

  4. Your twins are adorable! Thanks for stopping by today. I love ideas on how to keep toddlers happy so I will most surely be back : )

  5. I just stumbled upon all your blogs and I'm in love! It's crazy how similar our homes are, and we only have 5 kids (we're DONE!) ;) Not much TV going on at our house and people think it's nuts.

  6. Love it! That looks like an activity here in sunny Sydney Australia tomorrow!
