Our kids love using clip cards to help them practice and consolidate what they have been learning.  They are really engaged and because they are hands-on activities they don’t always realise that they are learning!

We love using clip card activities because they are also great for building fine motor strength. They are an excellent activity for independent work or partner learning stations.

As Christmas is right around the corner why not make this fun clothespin snowman craft with your kids. They are super cute and are so simple to make. Snowman clothespins can be used to clip the answers in any math or literacy clip cards. they make a cute gift too!

Our Kindergarten kids were involved in the craft making and helped to paint the pegs white. We gave them a little help when adding the pipe cleaner scarf The pompom carrot nose was a bit tricky to stick, we found that a hot glue gun worked best! Read on for the full instructions…

 

 

Clothespin Snowman Craft Instructions

First we painted each wooden clothespin white with acrylic paint. You could also sprinkle with glitter to add some extra sparkle. Depending on the quality of your paint you made need to do a couple of coats. Leave the clothespins to dry.

Next we wrapped a chenille stick around the peg for a scarf. You can also use ribbon or wool, whatever craft scraps you have.

For the nose we used mini orange pom poms. Glue onto the wooden clothespin with clear glue. Leave to dry.

Finally we used a sharpie to draw on the eyes, and mouth. We also drew on some buttons. You can stick sequins on if you like!
