Making textured clothespins for preschoolers

I recently shared how to make textured clothespins over at Child Central Station! In case you missed my guest post, hop on over and take a look!

She would love for you to add your clothespin idea to her linky too!

      I plan to let my class help me make some more – they add a little fun to an old idea:)

    I really love this idea! I just took out all of my preschool goodies before we officially begin homeschooling tomorrow, and I can’t wait to make up some of these!

      Yes – definitely some fine motor work is involved in squeezing the clothespins!

    I love this idea. To add a little more learning, you can put letters on the clothespins and they can be sorted into ABC order.
