We have made clothespin animals before during our Noah's Ark unit and we took those out for a bit during our Animal Antics week, but The Dragons were not entertained by them much.
Until all the kids were gone and it was just me and Doll Dragon. She asked if we could craft something together, a pony she said.
"Lets have some girl crafty time!"
I pulled out some felt and clothespins. I wanted to try a clothespin animal that was more personal, see if that would be more intriguing then the animals that I had made.
Clothespins are a great way to get the animals to stand.
I like to use felt for the clothespin animals because then I can use them on the felt board as well if needed. I don't have another paper craft just laying around the house, I hate that.
- 2 clothespins
- felt glue
Doll Dragon wanted a pink pony with a cutie mark. So we started there. As I was drawing the pony on the felt she was describing the cutie mark and drawing it on another piece of felt. She wanted a heart, star, and flower cutie mark.
Star Heart was born!
She now gallops with her other pony friends or stands as the pony statue of the town. Important thing is Doll Dragon is very happy with her creation :).
