Hundreds of unmarked pages in spiral notebooks, sharpened pencils with perfect erasers, and the smell of new crayons — I’ve always love the possibilities new school supplies signify. But sometimes kids need something to help them get excited about using those supplies. This simple mouse pencil topper is a fun back to school craft. It’s also a cute craft to go with the popular Library Mouse books.
These pencil toppers look cute, and make it more fun to use those pencils when doing homework.
- Craft Foam
- Wiggly Eyes
- Glue Stick
- Variety of Craft Buttons
- Free Mouse Pencil Topper Template (optional)
Make Your Own Mouse Pencil Topper
Use the template to trace the mouse shape on the craft foam, and then cut it out. (You can also freehand the shape if desired.) Cut the 2 horizontal lines towards the bottom of the mouse’s body. This is where your pencil will stick through.
Use your glue stick to add wiggly eyes. Add buttons for the mouse’s nose and ears. Your child may choose to decorate the mouse with lots of buttons — let them get creative!
Once the glue dries, slide your pencil into the slots of your pencil topper, forming his tail. You’re ready to write in style!
