We have the cutest pipe cleaner counting activity for kids to share with you today. It will take you less than 5 minutes to put together, and should cost less than $2!!
To set up the activity, start with paper cups. Styrofoam cups will work as well if you have those on hand. Turn the cups upside down.
Use a sharpie to write numbers on the front of the cups. We are working on numbers 1-10 right now, but you could probably go a bit higher if you need to.
This is a fantastic fine motor activity as well as counting. The kids have to shift and shuffle a little bit to get the pipe cleaners lined up just right to go through the holes. The smaller your screwdriver, the more challenging this activity will be.
When you have finished, stack the cups, place the pipe cleaner pieces inside, and store it for another day. We hope you enjoy this simple, fun pipe cleaner counting activity for kids.
