After all, apples are in season and these cute apple pencil toppers are a fun way to celebrate that. Additionally, Halloween is on its way. We decided to make Jack O Lanterns as our Halloween pencil toppers.
After your child decides what they’d like, sketch out the object on the appropriate colored construction paper. Then let him or her cut it out if they have learned cutting skills. This little project is great practice for developing fine motor skills. If the child is too young, just cut it out for him/her!
Once you have cut out the objects (you will need a front and a back), place glue on the back sides of your 2 cut-outs and place on either side of the pencil. Gentle press your cut out objects together and lay flat to dry. These are fall pencil toppers make fun accessories for your child’s pencil!
