Have you ever seen those cute clothespin frige magnets and wondered how they are made? Here’s a great tutorial to show you how your preschooler can help you make a tulip clothespin magnet. You can use the project sheet as it is to color and cut out or you can use it as a template to cut out your own shapes from craft foam, fabric or cardstock.
The best part about clothespin magnets is that you can put them on the fridge and they’ll hold your important notes or fabulous other art pieces in place.
You will need:
- Tulip craft pattern printout
- Wooden clothespin
- Craft glue
- Small magnet (strong)
- Color shapes
- Cut out shapes
- Apply glue
- Press shapes into place
- Let dry
- Adult helper can add magnet to back with hot glue
