Ten Minute Clothespin Crafts for Kids

Clothespin Crafts For Kids

Clothespin crafts for kids are the perfect quick craft to do with your little one. When Mia and I do them I found that they are not too hard for her to do, and I don’t lose her attention. She can quickly make something fun and will play with it for hours or even days after. That said, we’ve done a few clothespin crafts together over the past several months so I thought I’d share our favorites in a round-up of Ten Minute Clothespin Crafts for Kids.

Airplane Clothespin Kids Craft {full tutorial}

This one is quite a popular one among teachers. I’ve gotten a few emails about them and I love it!  It’s easy and the parents love them when their kids come home with their homework or artwork clipped together in these colorful little foam airplanes.

Caterpillar Clothespin Kids Craft {full tutorial}

Mia and I came up with these while rummaging through existing crafts supplies.  We had everything handy already and these little caterpillars came out so cute. We made these about five months ago and they are still holding strong and she still plays with them today.

Dragonfly Clothespin Kids Craft {full tutorial}

These little dragon flies were made with new-ish products on the market, fabric Duck Tape and Washi tape. Mia picked out these pretty girly colors, but with all the products available, the color and pattern possibilities are endless.

Chick and Egg Clothespin Craft {full tutorial}

I think these were Mia’s favorite. She just thought they were so cute. We made these around Easter time, and she played with them so much that they broke after two days! We made them out of old Easter stickers we had and some felt craft birds.
