Next, string 12 beads onto a sturdy piece of string.  (This is a great exercise for the kids to practice their fine motor skills!)  The first row should have 5 blue beads and 7 red beads.

Run a line of glue along the first clothespin.  (We ended up using a hot glue gun so the beads would adhere to the clothespins faster) While pulling your string tightly, lay the beads on top of the line of glue.  Wait until the beads are secure then pull the string out, leaving only the beads behind.
