Need an a activity for preschoolers and school aged kids that involves no prep? This is one that will work!
We counted the clothespins as they clipped them together. They made shapes with them as well. All-in-all, my son and daughter spent about 30 minutes exploring, pinching, and connecting the clothespins. You can always add other craft or play items into the activity as well so extend-construction paper, pieces of ribbon, an empty egg carton. There are always more possibilites!
After this, my two oldest were back to playing with our set of DIY jumbo building blocks. I guess those count as a “One Item” Activity too! Of course there are so many ways to use clothespins in learning activities. I have quite a few pinned to my Preschool Activities board on Pinterest.
Do you have any one item activity ideas that have been interesting to your children?
Enjoy your time at home!
