A Green and Crafty Pencil Holder

Help your children recycle everyday items with this craft. Take an empty can, like a soup can; clean it thoroughly; and smooth the edges with a file (it’s safest if you do the filing). Ask your child to collect sticks and use craft glue to attach the sticks to the can. Then, have her wrap with a rubber band until dry. The finished product is a perfect place for storing her pencils.
