N is for Newt Clothespin Craft Directions

  1. Before starting the craft with kindergarten or preschool kids, take a few minutes to prepare some of the supplies in advance. Cut each pipe cleaner into three equal parts. Two will become legs, and the third will become the tail.

  2. Paint the clothespin a “newty” color, like red, orange, black, or blue. We chose blue for our newts. Wait for the paint to dry completely.
  3. Once the kids are ready to make their newts, glue the pipe cleaners to different parts of the clothespin. Glue one near the opening and the other near the base of where you pinch it to open the clothespin. Glue the tail to the back of the pinch side.
  4. Glue the two googly eyes to either side of the opening side of the clothespin. Draw on a mouth, or let the clothespin be your newt’s mouth.
  5. Bend the two leg pieces out slightly to make it look like the newt’s feet and legs similar to the way a frog’s legs look (look at a picture of a newt if you can’t remember it).
