This is my favorite craft from my book, “Eight Lights for Eight Nights” (sadly out of print 🙁 ) I got the idea form early childhood educator Sherri Feld, and it is really simple, clever and useful. And the supplies are easy to get. (Home Depot has the paint stirrers for free). And your kid can do this themselves–they just need you to glue on the clothespin when they are done. You can use elmers, but if you don’t want to have to sit there and hold it ’til it dries, I recommend a glue gun.
