Who doesn’t love seeing their own name or artwork on something useful like a pencil? This is an easy way to bring new life to a boring or in our case a holiday pencil! Plus, it gives kids with names that have “hard to find” names a chance to have something personalized and spelled the correct way. These are perfect back to school crafts for kids of all ages, not just for preschoolers.
- Gather your materials. You will need some plain sticky back labels, markers, a pencil, and a pencil sharpener.
- Grab your markers and start designing your personalized back to school crafts. I can never find things with Allie on them and even if I use my whole name there are so many ways to spell Allison that I’m lucky if I find my spelling.
- Carefully wrap the label around the pencil. Don’t worry if it wrinkles just smush it down as flat as you can.
- Sharpen it and you are stylin’ with your homemade back to school crafts! All the pencils I made sharpened no problem with the labels. All you need to do now is pack them up in your pencil pouch or box and you’re ready for the school year!
