This rainbow threading with play dough and pipe cleaners is a sensory experience as well as fine motor skills practice. And, it is so simple to set up!
- Play dough
- Pipe Cleaners
- Colored Beads
- Scissors, optional
Step 1: Make two balls of equal size out of play dough.
Step 2: If you would like to pre-cut the pipe cleaners, snip so each color after red in the rainbow is a bit shorter. Or, feel free to just bend the pipe cleaner at each end after Step 3 to make them shorter prior to placing in play dough.
Step 3: Have your little one thread the beads of the same color on each of the pipe cleaners.
Step 4: Place each end of the pipe cleaner into the play dough balls to build the rainbow sculpture!
These are so fun to make in a group to see all of the beautiful variations of rainbows!
