Clothespin game

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Guess what? I did have a good weekend.  I did lot of shopping... wait for the photos, will show you all the fabric i bought.

I picked up few toys for my son. Toddler are physically and mentally active. I read somewhere  that the brain develop rapidly in first three years of a child's life. So these three year is most important period of their life. Recently I visited littlegenegreenbean blog and found some good preschool ideas.

With clothespin you can have lot fun games with your child. Clothespin games help toddlers develop eye and hand coordination and small muscle skills.  Whenever I dry my clothes I take my son along with me. I ask him to help me with clipping the clothespin.  He started loving it, he used to empty the container then put them back and start clipping the pin on the rim of container or cloth.

I bought some great plastic clothespin for my son. Its a Horse! 

 Aryan likes horse, we play jumping horse. He just loved these pin. See what I made for him.

My requirement was simple, few cereal box, A4 sheet to print the template,crayons and glue.     

I took few colour printed templates and others I coloured myself.  My son had fun colouring them as well he scribbled everywhere, you can them in the picture.

Now we enjoy playing matching the colour horse and clothespin.

If you have any ideas or games for toddler please write to me or leave a comment.
