Crafts With Pipe Cleaners

My daughter wanted to do origami but my tired brain didn’t feel like following instructions. Instead we used pipe cleaners and tin foil to make people and animals doing gymnastics. A simple way to have a nice time together. Would be easy to pack along a few pipe cleaners together with tin foil on a trip too. Go here to find more ideas on easy-to-do crafty type of activities when travelling.



  1. looks pretty good too! 🙂

  2. Oh! Oh! We did pipe cleaners the last two trips (mental note: must show you our tableau using pipe cleaners, feathers and the lid of a takeaway bento box on the train). Combining it with the alfoil is a great trick, though. We gave the alfoil a rest this time (got to mix it up a bit) but will be adding it back in to the set for future trips, maybe after the pipe cleaners have a rest as well.

    1. Yes, you must show us that one, sounds interesting!

  3. I am always so impressed with your ability to make a craft project out of anything! I would have never thought to use foil and pipe cleaners together!

    1. Oh, thank you, what a lovely compliment!

  4. That’s so cute! I love the addition of the tin foil – makes it more interesting and easier to pose!

    1. Yes, it did work out quite well!

  5. Aw, very cute! And simple! Kind of want a kid I can experiment with 😉

    1. Oh, you can borrow mine anytime 😉

      1. Are you sure they’d be safe with me!? 🙂

        1. Are you sure you’d be safe with them? 😉

          1. Um no! I hadn’t thought of it that way!!!
