Make It Monday: Clothespin Zoo Animals



If you bought a whole whack of clothespins to make last weeks Modern Note Clipboard, you can use up some spare ones to make this fun craft with your preschooler. On a rainy day last week, Sophie and I decided to create our own at home zoo experience.

What you'll need:

Clothespins
Markers
Cardstock
Scissors
Glue
Tape
Pipe cleaners
Googly eyes
Feathers


Directions:

Step 1. Cut body and head shapes out of the cardstock for the various zoo animals.

Step 2. Colour and design the clothespins and cardstock bodies and heads for each animal



Step 3. Affix the clothespins, heads, googly eyes, pipe cleaner tails and mane to the cardstock body using glue and tape. You're done.


If you're so inclined, use an old cereal box to make the zoo and pen up those wild animals.




Happy Monday!
