Back-to-School Craft: Pencil Creatures
It’s that time of year. School supplies are filling up the shopping carts, and kids are getting antsy as the last few weeks of summer wrap up. Make these adorable pencil creatures with your kids as a way to pass the time until school starts, as well as to send them off with some funky pencils that will stand out from the rest of the class!
- Washi tape
- Pom poms
- Googly eyesHot glue gun
Step 1: Remove the eraser from the pencil.
Step 2: Cover the pencil in washi tape. To prevent wrinkling, wrap a piece around the top and bottom of the pencil. Then, wrap the middle portion of the pencil, holding the tape at an angle.
Step 3: Fill the end of the pencil with hot glue and place on your pom poms.
Step 4: Use small dots of glue to add the eyes. Make them as silly or crazy as you want!
