The hardest part of this clothespin craft is being patient waiting for the paint to dry. And even if you have to touch it up as you go, it’ll be a fun lesson for the kids.

After they get used to making this simple snowman craft, they might want to change the paint color and make something different. Let them be creative and have fun with this simple project and see what they can make.

The fun thing about this craft is that there are so many ways it can turn out. Googly eyes are always fun because they’re really kind of sporadic and crazy.

You might need to help cut out some of the smaller pieces and that is fine. As long as they can use it and glue it on, it’s all part of creating together and having fun.

Make certain that everyone is patient in letting the glue dry. Otherwise, the eyes, nose, arms, hat, and buttons will just slide right off. (but if they do, just try again and glue them back on!)

These make great cute homemade gifts to attach to Christmas cards that you’re going to hand-deliver. Can you imagine clipping the Christmas cards to people’s mailbox with these cute little clothespins?

Talk about the cutest way to celebrate the holiday season!
