Craft foam pencil toppers

These pencil toppers make awesome gifts in my class.

 Easy to make and decorate, these pencil toppers also make a good party craft.

Craft foam was cut into 1 inch strips and then into bits roughly measuring the circumference of the pencil. It is always better to make a sample to make sure that it stays firmly on the pencil edge. Once the bits are ready, start sticking them while they are rolled onto the pencil using a glue gun - adult help required. The shapes required can be cutout or punched. The cutouts were glued using glue gun again and added some embellishments. Children can use acrylic paint, foam bits, glitter glue or sharpies to decorate as they prefer :)





































Enjoy making these lovely pencil toppers and explore more ideas using craft foam :)

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.



I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!
