Project Pretty Pencils February 13, 2012
You might not be the craftiest person in town, but here’s one artsy idea you can surely implement. Just stock your kiddos with pipe cleaners, pom-poms, felt, foam, glue, and more, and tell them to create animals and aliens and anything their little hearts so desire. Here’s where you come in: just hot glue gun all the crafty creations to pencils! Fancy pencils make great gifts, or you can do like the folks at my kids’ school and sell them in the hallways before the morning bell for 50 cents a piece and then donate the funds to charity. You can also add them to your garage sale inventory, use them as party favors, or jazz them up for special holidays.
