Clothespin Caterpillar


We have a ton of clothespin that we never use so I thought they would be good to use in crafts for the boys.  I saw this idea on Somewhere in the Middle.  We made ours into magnets.  We put 2 small pieces of magnets which have adhesive on the back.  We should have used more magnets because they weren't very strong.  We made this craft when my nephew was over visiting.  The Clothespin Caterpillar pictured above was made by Hasan.  Bilal was not feeling well at the time so opted out.  I used this to hang Hasan's Napkin Man on the fridge.


We used a hot glue gun so that they would dry right away but you can use regular white glue.

Materials Needed:
Clothespin
Pom poms
Googly eyes
Glue or Hot Glue Gun

How To:
Put a line of glue on top of the clothespin.  Put the pom poms on top.  Glue on the googly eyes.  If you want the glue to dry right away use a hot glue gun like we did.
