Pipecleaner 'Sewing'

I nabbed this little plastic 'canvas' at Riot Art N' Craft the other day, knowing that it's one of those items which will play a myriad of different roles in our art box. The first (and simplest) activity I could think of was 'sewing' with pipecleaners. It's actually as simple as it sounds.

Pipecleaners + Plastic Canvas = Happy Eden

"Smile for the camera, honey" 

Check out her masterpiece! How cool is that?! This is a wonderful fine motor skill activity, and is quite satisfying for your tot to see the fruits of their labours immediately. Unlike real hand sewing, ay mums? 
When I asked Eden what she had sewn, she said "a beautiful picture, of course, Mum" and then gave me a look as if I had asked her if water was wet. A beautiful picture it is. ~L.
