Decorated Dad Clips

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

Binder clips are indispensable tools for the modern dad. Beyond fastening papers together, they hold chip bags closed, keep computer cords organized, and can even be used as a money clip.


  • Large binder clips
  • Child's drawing
  • Glue


Cut a child's drawing into 2- by 3-31/8-inch pieces.

Coat the back of each piece with a thin layer of glue, then wrap it around the outside of one of the clips.


Kids' extra artwork can be used for one-of-a-kind wrapping paper, bookmarks, or even (when run through a paper shredder) colorful packing material and confetti.
