Clothespin Wrestlers

Materials: 2 clothespins, 1 fat rubber band

Instructions: Father and child should decorate each of the clothespins a different color with the meanest looking faces they can draw. Round wooden clothespins work best. Look carefully at the illustration, and hook the rubber band around both clothespins as shown.

How to play: Wind up the wrestlers (but not too tightly) and carefully put them down. Now quickly let go. For a few seconds the wrestlers will knock each other all over the place, but in the end, one wrestler will land on top of the other and be the winner. Sometimes neither wrestler will win. Father can challenge child to wrestling matches!
