Pipe Cleaner Flowers 

Welcome to Spring!

Crafting with pipe cleaners is great for pre-primary aged children as it can help develop fine motor skills by twisting and bending them. It’s also a great sensory experience as they can get used to the textures of different craft materials. 

Join us in the Waterfront Room at the Cardinia Cultural Centre this Friday 2 September from 10 am - 12 pm to make some pipe cleaner flowers.

This is a great little addition to a plant pot, a garden or for imaginative bug play.
For this session we encourage families to please bring in small-medium stones and rocks, so we can paint them to look like cute little ladybugs!

This session will be held in the Waterfront Room at Cardinia Cultural Centre, Tuesday 6 September from 10am-12pm.
