I got out some supplies with the plan of making some cute clothespin cars that I saw in Family Fun magazine awhile ago. It called for some clothespins, bread ties, straws and buttons. I took out the pipe cleaners too. I made one of the cars but the kids had other ideas. They wanted to make their own creations. I think they came out amazing and this project kept their attention for quite awhile. So if you need a project for a rainy day, this is a great one. This is great for exercising those little hand muscles that they need for writing. It is also great for exercising those creativity muscles too! I wonder what your kids will invent?
