The development of fine motor skills greatly affects a variety of activities that include clothespins. One of these activities is to put a right clothespin on matching color or shade of color. Cards with shades of color we can get in specialized stores for paint and varnish (Image 1).

On each clothespin, we glue a piece of paper in one color (Image 2).

Using the clothespin, a child will strengthen muscles of the hand and fingers.

Except matching clothespin of the color, we can do this activity so that the child must match a symbol on the clothespin with matching forms, letters, numbers, characters from cartoons and the like.
