Switch up a popular ring stacking activity with pipe cleaners so that it’s fun for younger ones, too.
There are so many fun activities out there for children, especially on Hands on As We Grow. Preschoolers and toddlers can have a blast!
For younger children, especially babies and early walkers, finding easy-to-do activities can be harder.
Our Member of the Month, Andrea, loves The Activity Room because it has helped her to find fun crafts and activities for her baby.
She’s also found a supportive community of other parents here.
“The Activity Room is great because not only can you share what you are doing, you can see what others are doing and get even more great ideas,” said Andrea. “Plus everyone is really friendly and supportive.”
Filling your time with activities helps your young child to build skills and make each day interesting.

Pipe Cleaner Ring Stacking Activity:
Having a child on the younger side requires modification.
Instead of putting pasta or cereal on sticks, I used pipe cleaners to make easier rings to place on pipe cleaner sticks.
Younger toddlers will love this easy ring stacking activity!
