Clothespin Clipping Toy - Fine Motor Activity

A clothespin clipping activity is a fun, easy addition to a fun box, and it has limitless extension activities.

I used a small canister similar to a formula can and decoupaged scrapbook paper around and on top of it. The activity is to simply clip clothespins around the edges of the can. They can then be stored inside.

Some extensions I plan on doing with it:
  • adding a hole in the lid for depositing the clips
  • coloring the clothespins and adding stickers around the edge of the can for color matching
  • numbering the clothespins for sequencing
  • adding cards to clip onto the sides of the can with the clothespins

For now, Meg seems to be enjoying the base activity very much.
