Pencil Tops

With this project, the only limit is a kid’s imagination. Whatever creature, shape, or theme she/he can think of could be living on top of his/her pencil!

What you’ll need:

Craft foam sheets or shapes
White craft glue
Wiggle eyes

How to make it:

Start with two identical sized shapes, such as a circle or heart. Put glue around the border of one of the shapes, leaving about ¾” where you will insert the pencil. (See photo.)

Press the second shape onto the first, sandwiching them together. The glue will need to dry for several hours, preferably overnight, but you can decorate the outside now.

Decorate the outside of the craft foam shape using pom-poms, wiggle eyes, other foam shapes, glitter glue, sequins, whatever you like. We made a black bear using pom-poms for ears and a nose and a couple of wiggle eyes. (See photo.) We also made a flower using several pom-poms and a bird using wiggle eyes and other craft foam shapes. (See photo.)

Once the toppers have dried completely, insert the eraser end of a pencil carefully into the opening.
