Twisting pipe cleaners is a great fine motor activity, and this pipe cleaner craft is perfect for little hands!


• red 12-inch pipe cleaners • white 12-inch pipe cleaners • wide green ribbon • scissors


Bunch the two same-color pipe cleaners into an even stack and fold them all in half. 

Twist the two doubled over white pipe cleaners together from one end all the way to the other end so it looks like one 6” pipe cleaner.

Repeat step 2 with the red pipe cleaner.

Then, twist the red and white pieces together as well, trying to twist them tightly and evenly. Twist ends together tightly so the pieces don’t untwist.

Bend into a candy cane shape.

Cut a 12” piece of your green ribbon and tie it around your candy cane in a bow. Trim the edges as desired.
