Create a Clothespin Alphabet
Want a different way to make learning to read fun? All you need is clothespins and paint sticks, and your child will have some hands-on learning tools for spelling, alphabetical order, and sight word practice. An added bonus is that opening and closing the spring-type clothespins is a great strengthening exercise for the fine motor muscles that kids need to master handwriting.

- 100 (more or less) spring-type clothespins
