Materials

Tip: For a miniature version of this craft, use miniature clothespins, available at crafts supply stores.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Print and cut out the shapes

    Cut out all the shapes from the Blue's Clues Art Clips printable. (Print on card stock or laminate the paper cut-outs for longer durability.)

  2. Step 2: Make the art clips

    Glue one shape to one side of a clothespin. Make as many art clips as you need.

  3. Step 3: Display the artwork

    Find a place around the house where you want to hang the artwork. <br><br>Secure a ribbon between two spots by tying either end of the ribbon to a steady object. Or use pushpins to secure the ribbon on a flat surface. <br><br>Hang the clips on the ribbon and let Blue and her friends grip the artwork for you!

  4. Craft Variation: Blue's Clues Art Magnets

    Affix a piece of magnetic tape to the other side of the finished art clips. <br><br> Place the magnetic art clips on a refrigerator or a display board, and Blue and her pals will be in position to present your little ones' artwork!

Tip: When hanging, keep the line taut. This will prevent the artwork from weighing it down.
