Fun & Fancy Pencil Holder
Felt in different colors, scissors, glue, additional glitter or sequins.
Begin by covering a clean, empty soup can with felt; be sure that the felt goes over the top edge, if it's sharp. Next, help your child to cut out fun shapes from different colors of felt. Glue the shapes on the can in any design, and finish off the project with ribbon at the top and bottom of the can. This turns out to be a beautiful pencil holder for your child's first desk. (I still have mine from elementary school!)
