3D free-standing, modular structures with clothespins

Create free standing sculptures composed of wood clothes pins. The goal of this activity is the kids to understand the concept of modular constructions and to experiment with an interesting technique of grasping and joining things together: When the two prongs of clothes pins are pinched at the top, the prongs open up. When released the spring draws the two prongs shut, gripping anything in between. In general, 3d crafts activities are an excellent opportunity to experiment with balance and three dimensional space.
