The newest obsession in our house is clothespins. Ever since we dried our clothes on the clothesline several years ago, my kids have been obsessed with clothespins. In fact, my two littlest boys loved carrying them around and playing with them.

When we moved away from that house and started traveling full-time, my kids found other uses for the clothespins. They would pretend they were people and create families to “play house”. They would make them into dragons, dinosaurs and puppets to their hearts content.

So, of course that got me thinking. What more could they create with clothespins? With a little quick searching, I found tons of easy-to-make crafts for my kids to do with clothespins. And when they have completed those crafts, they will have so much fun playing and continue using their imaginations.

You’ll find a plethora of different clothespin crafts. From airplanes to fairies and holidays to animals, there is something for everyone. I was even able to find some fun craft projects for older kids. Now the entire family can be involved in creating with clothespins.

Grab some clothespins and supplies. Everyone will love getting crafty with these ideas!
