Pipe Cleaner & Bead Animals – 30 Minute Crafts

This is something I made with my girls (especially the little one) as a part of their countdown calendar last month. It’s quick and easy but fun craft idea perfect for rainy days and long winter evenings.

Initially we were planning to use only wooden beads but then we have discovered that the hair beads are big enough to thread easily on pipe cleaners as well.

We made couple of animals plus some seasonal crafts… more photos coming soon.
