Yesterday afternoon, Marley and I decided to get crafty. We pulled out the foam sheets, googly eyes, and glue dots, and created some really cute pencil toppers. It’s so easy, I think a child any age can do this with a little help from mom (or dad)!
Check it out:
Here’s what we did:
We got all of our supplies out – and we had no real direction, so we pulled everything out that we thought we might use. We ended up using only a few things:
– Foam sheets
– Googly eyes
– Glue dots
– Hole puncher
– And in Marley’s case, pipe cleaners
First we traced circles on the foam sheets – 2 for each pencil topper.
Cut them out:
I made a ladybug first, so I cut out a piece for the head:
And of course, she needs dots:
And voila! A cute little ladybug to adorn your pencil 🙂
Marley and I each made a few little critters:
(It’s supposed to be a black lab, like our dogs, but my dog looks a little like a pig!)
These were so easy – we spent about 30-45 minutes and ended up with 5 new friends to help Marley with her homework. I made a ladybug, black lab, and flower, and Marley made a really cool lion and peacock! She’s so creative! 🙂
Have a Happy Friday! See you this weekend!
