Pipe cleaners are some of our favorite supplies for kids fun. I love how they come in a variety of colors, are fairly inexpensive (I've seen them at the dollar store) and are totally versatile. I also have great memories of playing with pipe cleaners when I was a kid. Well, pipe cleaners are still very popular all these years later.
