Lil Tip: Pipe Cleaners

Pipe cleaners work magic when it comes to unleashing a child's creativity. My daughter loves twisting them into shapes and critters. Most recently, she strung beads on one and turned it into a bracelet. Whether you're trying to entertain your preschooler at a restaurant or provide them with a rainy day activity — a pack of pipe cleaners costs only $2 and will occupy them for at least an hour.

My son loves pipecleaners and googly eyes. A couple bags of pipecleaners can make a lot of dinosaurs.
