Maker’s Minute: Playful Pencil Pals [4-H Activity]

making a pencil pal

With some creativity, just a little bit of glue, and some craft supplies, you can make a Playful Pencil Pal!

This pal is sure to bring a smile to your face and help make doing work at home more enjoyable.

You will need some type of glue- school glue, craft glue, or even a low-temperature glue gun will work. Gather a variety of craft supplies, many of which you may already have. Things like feathers, googly eyes, and pipe cleaners all work great. What else could you use? And don’t forget your pencil! Use your supplies and your glue to create a fun pencil topper for your pencil.
