Clothespin Felt or Cardboard Toys Play Set
This is a multipurpose learning toy for your little one. These toys are made from felt (cardboard) and clothespins. It’s simple but cute! There are 7 toys in these play set: sun, cloud, girl, boy, hedgehog, spider and fir-tree.
Playing with this toy kids use their imagination, but also fingers for fine motor control. Practicing pincer grasps on the clothespins creates the strength and coordination needed for writing skills.
Have fun counting and pinching the clothespins onto the toys. The clothespins become the legs, hands, needle, rays.
This PDF pattern is perfect for creating clothespin toys, some of them stand up on their own. I use the small clothespin to make this activity trickier. You will need to increase the pattern for regular clothespins.
Kids can create a story with this clothespin toys. These crafts can be so educational!
