I picked these little critters up at Michael's today. I am excited to give one (or two) to each of my students so they can have a fun way to work on finger strength. Believe it or not, even though they are small, the clothespin part is quite strong. I am planning to use one myself, especially for that pesky left hand pinky! I think they will be especially helpful for kids.
See? Little clothespins! They had all sorts of different bugs to choose from, but I decided that my students might like a pun to help them remember to use their bee. Oh, the price? I almost forgot. Only $1.50 :)
