This lovable giraffe can stand up all on its own thanks to sturdy clothespin legs.


What You'll Need:

Card stock, scissors, paint, paint brushes, clothespins, pom poms, pipe cleaners or chenille stems

Make It:

  1. Cut an oval from the cardstock.
  2. Paint the oval and three clothespins yellow. Add black paint to the tip of each clothespin as shown.
  3. Once the paint has dried, let your child use his fingertips to create brown paint spots all over the oval body and clothespin legs and neck.
  4. Clip the legs and neck onto the body. Stick a yellow pom-pom face onto the neck and adhere a folded pipe cleaner or chenille stem along the back of the neck to complete the giraffe.
