DIY Stained Clothespins with Food Coloring

kaleyann_clothespins_6I am so happy!  I can finally conclude my  search for this DIY project!

This idea came to me when I was  watching my kids play with colored pasta in ” rainbow snow” sensory activity.  You can see it here.  I thought, it will be awesome if I can stain  the clothespins in rainbow colors.

My two kids respond with excitement when they see anything in rainbow.  I tried avoiding chemical stains used for fabrics.   I already knew my kids will put the clothespins in their mouth.  I was looking for a non toxic alternative.  Perhaps a simple and easy DIY  project that I can do with young children.   My wishes have been answered.

Here’s what you will need to stain your clothespins:
-wooden clothespins (any size you would like)
-white vinegar
-food coloring (the liquid drops work better than the gel)
-boiling water
-jars or containers to soak the clothespins in
