Countdown to Valentine’s Day—no. 4

For today’s activity, we engaged in a little themed fine motor fun! To do this activity with your little one, you’ll need:

-A colander

-Construction paper

-Scissors (adult use)


-Straws or pipe cleaners

To prep for the activity, I cut out some small hearts and taped them to some straws. I left them by a colander for the little guy to discover. Once he did, we worked on manipulating the heart straws to fit into the colander.

What I like about this activity was the quick, easy setup, clean up, and the endless learning possibilities. My little guy first completed the activity as intended, then flipped the colander to practice filling/emptying it!

*Make sure your pipe cleaners/straws fit into the holes first!*
