This example uses two “goalies” on each end and three middle guys so each child only needs to handle two dowels. --STEP 2--Stand the clothespins up and put the dowel right against the outside of the box. --STEP 3--About 1/4 above the dowel, put a mark for the hole. You want the clothespins to be able to move without hitting the bottom of the box. --STEP 4--Make a hole on your mark by pushing the tip of your knife in and turning it around. It makes a perfect hole when you use a sharp blade. Next, push the dowel through and mark the inside of the box where you want the hole on the other side.--STEP 5--Put the dowels in and the clothespins on where you want.
