Craft Support for the Less Than Crafty

I am one of the less than crafty Moms.
 I admit it.
 I need a craft that is easy to do and doesn't take a lot of supplies to get the craft done. I like the craft to mostly be done by the child. I don't mind a mess as long as you get to have fun in the process!
Pie Pie recently went to an event where she made a craft that is for Moms just like me! It is very simple and my kids liked it.
A Zebra made by Pie Pie.
You only need a few supplies to get the craft put together.
1. card stock
2. clothespins (the ones with the springs in them)
3. scissors
4. markers
You start by drawing an animal shape onto the card stock. You want to leave off any part where you want to use a clothespin. Then you cut out the shape and draw on animal details. Don't forget the clothespins! They need faces and colors too.
Animals made by Pants.
Your child can use their imagination to make whatever animal they would like. We used a clothespin to make the neck of a giraffe, clothespins for ears of a rabbit and/or a clothespin for a trunk of an elephant! These can be used for almost any study where animals are involved. I am planning on making these the next time I teach children's church!
I do not know who came up with this nifty craft, but it was not me. I just wanted to pass along the fun to all the other Moms out there who needed a little craftiness!
