Washi Tape Pencil Holder for School
It’s almost time to start the new school year (already?!), and as a homeschooling mom, I’m doing what it takes to get my kids excited about it!
One thing that my kids love to do is make something all on their own that is useful. My kids are practical that way :-)….and who doesn’t get excited about accomplishing something?!
So this morning, when my daughter said she wanted to have a pencil holder for her desk, I suggested she find a way to make it out of something we already had in the house. The only thing we had was an empty 16-ounce water bottle, and she was sure she couldn’t wait another day to get something with more of a smooth surface :-P, so the water bottle it was!
How to Make It:
*We started by cutting off the top portion of the water bottle.
*Next, we wrapped the entire bottle in washi tape, one line at a time. We made sure that all our seams ended up in the back. On the top, we left some hanging over to wrap over the raw edge into the inside.
(I got this cute washi tape bundle from Amazon.com!)
*My daughter loves bows, so she finished it off with a little white ribbon bow. 🙂
*Since a water bottle is so light-weight, we put a few stones in the bottom to make sure it won’t tip over easily.
In my experience, when kids make something on their own, they love using it! One fun little project like this can get your kids excited about their workspace! Help them make their space functional and fun as you prep them for this new school year!
