How clothespins can make meals fun

A crazy week at the newspaper soon will dissolve into a weekend of serving the teens from East Glenville Community Church, which have been coming here for a few years.

They’re actually a fun bunch of kids to watch at mealtimes, as they play “the clothespin game.” One clothespin makes the rounds through mealtime, with kids trying to quietly clip it to a friend without them knowing. Hoodies are a popular place for clips to land. Whoever has it at the end has to sing “I’m A Little Teapot.”

Worth trying with our summer campers.
