How to Make

  1. Take a few sheets of white card and write out three and four lettered words in black pen, ensuring the letters are large and clear, as shown in the picture.
  2. Take a selection of pipe cleaners and bend them around to form the letters on the sheet, so that you can overlay them on top – you may need to trim some excess to make them overlay neatly.
  3. Once you’ve bent the pipe cleaners into shape so they fit the drawn out letters, straighten them up and lay each pile on the sheet that has the word they fit written on it.

Top Tip

Fold over the ends of the pipe cleaners if they are a little sharp
