Kid's Pipe Cleaner Sculpture Workshop with Land of Nod

Ampersand Design Studio

When we were in Chicago last month, we had a total blast hosting a craft workshop with some great kids at The Land of Nod's North & Clybourne Store. We got to share one of our favorite kids' crafts: Pipe Cleaner & Straw Sculptures! We always love a craft that is great for a wide range of ages and has no mess!! Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it’s super colorful, fun to do, and ends up being one of those projects you want to save! Here is the tutorial so you can do the project at home:

Supplies:

• A styrofoam block

• Various colors of pipe cleaners

• Plastic beads

Step 2 (optional): String the plastic beads onto the pipe cleaners.

Step 3 (optional): Using the straws as a base, push the pipe cleaner into the straw.

After that, just let your kids play around! Your kids may loop the pipe cleaners from straw to straw or simply continue to build from the styrofoam block. No two sculptures will turn out alike, and after all, that is our favorite thing about art!
