Recycled Pencil Holder

What You Need:

  • Tin can
  • String
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Small container
  • Paintbrush

What You Do:

  1. Have your child to make sure his tin can is clean and dry before beginning his project.
  2. Now, give your child the bits and pieces of string to use for wrapping his can. Not only is he recycling a can, he’s using all those leftover pieces of string! He can think about color arrangement or patterning before beginning. To make the gift really special, he can even use his favorite colors!
  3. Have your child to pour some glue in a small container and use a paintbrush to coat the outside of the can.
  4. Now he can begin wrapping the can with the pieces of string, pressing them gently to the can as he goes – this will help him hone his fine motor skills!
  5. Encourage your child to continue coating with glue, wrapping and pressing the string until the entire can is covered.
  6. Now he can fill the can with new pencils and pens.

This pencil holder also makes a great gift that will help keep any desk organized.
