Clothes Pins in the Can

What to do:

  • An empty coffee can or oatmeal box with a plastic lid makes a good place to store old-fashioned clothes pins.
  1. Infants can empty the pins for the container and put them back again.
  2. They can shake the can full of clothes pins and hear them rattle.
  3. Try cutting a small hole in the lid so they can drop the pins in the can.


  • Toddlers can slip old- fashioned clothes pins around the rim of the can.
