Kids Craft: Easter Pencils & Pencil Can

Time to get crafty with the children!

 Making pencil cans has been a craft well loved by children for a long time. This Easter, let the children decorate some Easter pencils and cans to give to one another, for teacher's gifts, grandparents gifts or Sunday school gifts.

We made one pencil can for girls and one pencil can for boys. No one gets left out around here! So gather up some supplies and lets make some Easter pencils and cans.

 Supplies you will need: clean, dry cans. scrap book paper or card stock. pipe cleaners. foam flower stickers. bug stickers. pencils. pom poms. Easter grass. glue.

 We found our flower foam stickers and Easter pencils at the dollar store. You will need two same stickers for each pencil. Peel off sticker baking and place on pencil up near the eraser. Do on both sides.

 Measure and cut to fit around the can your paper and glue or tape on to the can.

 Cut three different lengths from the pipe cleaner to use as flower stems, and glue to the front of the can.

                       Peel and stick to your pipe cleaner stems your flower stickers.

 Using two pipe cleaners per one eyed worm pencil, start in the middle with one and wrap upwards. Do the same with the other pipe cleaner until you reach the top. Glue on the pom pom as the head, and one google eye.

 Apply your bug stickers to the front of the boy's pencil can. Fill cans with Easter grass and insert the pencils.

                                  Girls Easter flower pencils and pencil can.

                                   Boys one eyed worm Easter pencils and pencil can.

                       We love how cheerful the girls pencils and pencil can turned out.

And we love how the boys pencils and pencil can is not your typical Easter basket fare, and makes the boys feel really special!

So are you inspired now to get a little craft going for the children?! These are some of the special little moments they will remember for years to come. Be inspired, get creative!

The wise woman builds her house,
But the foolish pulls it down with her hands. 
Proverbs 14:1
