My daughter is too old for the letter matching task, but love the idea of the clothes-pins. Going to make more complicated, teen-friendly game and use the clothes-pin instead. They would be great for her fine-motor skills and hand strength.
Big numbers and clip on the right # of clothes pins. Math and fine motor in one activity. you could also make the numbers different colors and have them match colored clothes pins to the color of the number
paint chip color-matching activity ~ Simply grab two matching paint chips, cut one up and glue each color to a clothespin while keeping the other intact. The idea is to mix them all up and then hand them over to your kiddo to match up again.
