Out of money, time, and ideas to keep those little hands busy today? Grab a stash of pipe cleaners or a roll of aluminum foil and encourage your little ones to create balls, angels, monsters, animals, or any imaginary creature they can design.
Foil can be folded, crumpled, drawn on, etched into, or torn into a wide array of structures. With a few bends and twists, pipe cleaners are the ultimate art tool. Get creative. Have fun. And see what you can create as a family with these common, inexpensive household items.
