Clothespin and Button Car Craft for Kids

Let's get creative with a fun and engaging craft project for kids - the Clothespin and Button Car Craft! This activity is not only entertaining but also helps children develop their fine motor skills and creativity. This craft is perfect for a rainy day activity or a fun weekend project. It's a simple yet enjoyable way for kids to express themselves and create something unique. So gather your supplies and get ready to make some adorable Clothespin and Button Cars with the little ones in your life! Kids can also add other decorations like stickers or googly eyes to personalize their cars. This craft is a great way to keep kids entertained while also encouraging them to use their imagination.

Here’s what you need to make them:

  • Clothespins
  • Paint – we used acrylic
  • Straws
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Buttons
  • Glue – we used hot glue

Step 1: Paint some clothes pins. We used acrylic paint for durability, but be aware that it does not wash out of clothes!

Step 2: While the cars are drying, put together the wheels. This is a step that the kids can’t really help with.

The cars that I saw on ikatbag used twist ties for the axles, but we didn’t have any. We tried pipe cleaners, but they are too fuzzy and add too much friction. Bamboo skewers, straws, and hot glue worked really well! If you have twist ties, though, I think that might be even better because there is no chance of the wheels falling off.

Step 3: Glue the wheels to the clothespins. I only glued the back wheels – the clothespin holds the front wheels in place.

Then you’re ready to play!
