Caterpillar Clothespin Magnetic Clip

Caterpillar Clothespin Magnet Craft for KidsHappy Monday Typically Simple viewers!  I am excited to be back over here on Kelly’s site sharing a kids craft. This caterpillar clothespin is a fun project for all ages!

These handmade clips add a cute touch to the refrigerator and serve a real purpose when it’s time to tuck open bags back into the pantry.  They make a great handmade gift for grandparents, neighbors, and teachers.

You will need the following to create your own caterpillar clothespin:
– clothespins
– craft paint (for wood)
– paint brushes
– magnet strips
– fuzzy craft balls
– googly eyes
– glue


 Begin by painting your clothespin – allow plenty of time to dry.  At my house we call “paint drying time” – NAPTIME.  After the paint has dried and the little one(s) have had a good rest, it is time to add a magnet to the bottom side of the clothespin.

Many thanks to Kelly for sharing her space with me today!
