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