Oh my gosh, you guys… this could seriously be THE. BEST. LAZY. MOM. TIP. EVER!!!!
My middle child particularly took a great liking to the pipe cleaners. He twisted them into all kinds of things… people, fish, tire swings, etc. He started arranging his creations all around him, including the above handles and the window area.
It seriously kept him busy the entire time he was awake in the car. It also kept my other children busy for most of the time, but none of them were nearly as creative as my middle one!
[Side note: Last week we were at Kids Camp. We bought a pack of pipe cleaners while we were there and you should have seen the creations our pre-teens came up with! They made crowns, butterfly wings, wands, necklaces … ALL kinds of cool things out of them!]
So now that you’ve heard this AWESOME lazy mom tip, you must, I said absolutely MUST, go get you a bag of pipe cleaners and try it yourself! It’s the cheapest form of entertainment EVER ($1.24 for a bag of 100 at Walmart!).
