Simple Invitation to Thread for Toddlers

 
My toddler is a busy boy all day long.  He does not stop.  As I am sure many of you can relate, sometimes I need to keep him busy on his own so I can wash dishes or make lunch.  This day he had cereal on a tray and brought out the pipe cleaners from our Fine Motor Activity Can.  He now had the perfect set up for a simple invitation to thread.  Now to wash the dishes while he played.

What we did:
 
I gave him the supplies and let him take over.  He would put one piece of cereal at a time on the pipe cleaner.  He wore it as a bracelet.  He would put the cereal on and then take them off.

This turned out to be the perfect busy activity for him this day.  He was having fun while I was right there cleaning up the house.  It was a win win for both of us.  He even got to enjoy a snack in the process.
