First off....look at those cheeks! I sure do miss that!
(This is a picture from about a year or so ago that I found going through old files.)
This "busy bag" idea was a pinterest find here.
Old plastic container (Crystal Light)
Different colored pipe cleaners
White hole reinforcers
Strip labels off of the containers.
Punch holes in the lid. (I made 7)
Put a hole reinforcer over each one.
Color reinforcer to match pipe cleaners. (You can do this before or after you put them on.)
Cut pip cleaner to a little smaller than height of container.
