Clothespin Paper Doll Template (best printed out on card stock)
6 spring clothespins (I used 2 1/4″ clothespins)
Paint & paintbrush

Color the paper dolls and cut out. Paint one side (or both sides) of the clothespins (2 per doll) and allow to dry completely. Glue the shoes onto the tip of the arm of the clothespin. Insert the doll into the pair of jaws on the clothespin, and there you have your clothespin paper doll.

My goal is to share a project a week and I will try my darnedest to stick to it throughout the summer. The girls and I made these on Friday, but they are already wanting to make more; I see a larger clothespin doll family in our future!

What are some of your go-to summer projects to do with kids?
