3 to 5 years

Clothespins are very good trainers for small hands, and perfectly develop fine motor skills. First, teach your toddler to attach clothespins to various flat objects, such as a cardboard or plate. Then you can wash doll clothes, handkerchiefs or baby socks and try to attach the clothespins to a clothesline.

To make lessons with clothespins fun and interesting, make toys with your baby.


  • Cut out a circle with a diameter of 10-15 cm from yellow cardboard - this will be the sun, and the yellow clothespins will be the rays of the sun.
  • Cut out the silhouette of the Christmas tree using the green cardboard, the green clothespins will be needle twigs.

If the clothespins are multi-colored, you can make a colored circle.


  1. Take heavy cardboard, glue, scissors and colored paper the same color as your clothespins.
  2. Cut out a circle from cardboard, from colored paper - whichever size and color you decide.
  3. Stick the colored segments onto the cardboard circle.
