Besides the fact that I love COLOR, my primary purpose was actually to get my kiddos practicing their 3-finger grasp with clothespins. Pinching the clothespin strengthens fingers and helps to develop a 3-finger grasp that's important for writing skills.
This was such a simple game to make and the children loved it! They worked together to match the colors and clip all of the clothespins. There could be lots of other variations on this game too---besides colors, you could match letters, numbers or sight words. Whatever the theme, just keep pinchin'!!
