Pipe Cleaner Magic Wand

This easy to make magic wand will be a fun trigger to set the mind to work on your own special fairy tale adventure.


Wooden Skewer
6 Yellow Pipe Cleaners
2 Pink Pipe Cleaners
1 Blue Pipe Cleaner
3 Purple Pipe Cleaners


Bend and shape 1 yellow, 1 blue and 1 pink pipe cleaner into a 5-pointed star shape. They should be about 1.5”-2” in size. Twist ends together. You should have about a 3” tail on each star. Click on printables for an illustration of this part.

Twist most of a purple pipe cleaner around a pencil. Leave a 3” tail. Slide off. Repeat with 2 more purple pipe cleaners.

Gather the six shaped pipe cleaners together by the tails. Hold them together near the end of the skewer. Wrap tightly with a pink pipe cleaner.
