Activity: Playing with Clothespins

Here is a recent activity my toddler son and I did together – great for a rainy day when you’re stuck inside doing laundry!

Grab a pack of clothespins from the dollar store, rig up a clothesline, and clip away!  We used socks, but there are many other items you could try such as napkins or paper plates.  With the socks, we were able to sort them by color, size, or owner.

It was also fun to use the clothespins to play tricks on each other and sneak a clip on when the other person wasn’t looking!

For a more detailed account of this fun activity, check out my post on Kids Activity Blog here: Things to do with a Toddler: Clothespin Play

Happy clipping!

    This is such a simple, but great idea! I am always looking for new activities for my daughter–this is something that I think she will love!

    I’d love it if you link up at my Teaching Time for Toddlers post. (Feel free to link up as many posts of anything of yours that is relevant that you’d like!)
