Clothespin dolls

I made clothespin dolls with a group of Kindergarteners yesterday and it was a great deal of fun. I used an electric hand drill with a a very fine bit to drill holes just below the "head". The children inserted pipe cleaners through the holes to represent the arms. They used magic markers to draw shoes directly onto the doll. I had a wide assortment of fabric, ribbon,pompoms, lace, beads, buttons, and sequins so that their dolls could be properly attired. Skirts were made from a circle of felt or cloth with a tiny circle cut out in the center for the waist. We used white glue to hold everything in place.
