Simply Made ~ Clothespin People

We threw these together after watching one of the girls' videos by Karyn Henley. In a video about organizing things, Karyn Henley puts a cardboard house together and features some clothespin people in the home. Our final outcome isn't exactly like hers. Here's what we whipped up on the spur of the moment . . .

Materials used for the clothespin people:
End Result:
As you can see, I quickly covered a cereal box with coloured paper (Grace's choice). We just taped it on so Grace could start playing with it right away. She drew a snowman at the front of the house. If I had stopped to think while cutting the doors to this "house" I would've made the doors high enough to fit the clothespin people (LOL). Remember we "whipped this up" in a jiffy.
This is the "backyard."The "backyard" was decorated using some stickers we had on hand. The clothespin people were having a "party" in the backyard.
