As toddlers develop their fine motor skills, they love to explore with their hands by grasping and manipulating objects. One great way to encourage this skill-building is through creative activities that combine toys and materials that require manual dexterity, such as pipe cleaners.

One fun idea is creating an ocean-themed activity using sea animal toys and colorful pipe cleaners. You can use any ocean animals that you have on hand or order the ones we used via Amazon. In addition, you'll need a handful of pipe cleaners, which you can pick up at a craft store or also on Amazon.
