Hi! I’m Kimbo from A girl and a glue gun! School supplies are on sale! I love stocking up (I think I buy more for me than for my kids!) I wanted to put together a cute way to get those crayons or markers out of the box and into a fun usable piece of art that sits right on your desk! (and with school starting soon these would be a perfect gift for teachers!–You could even personalize it with your teacher’s name!
Here is what you need:
2 x 4 in any length (If you scroll to the bottom you can see the variations of wood sizes!)
Drill with bit (a kit like this will give you a variety of hole sizes)
Depending on the writing utensil will depend on how big to make the hole. And measure out accordingly. Then drill.
You can paint and decorate these any way you want–or even have kids help!
I painted half and stained the the other half.
I added some Expressions Vinyl phrase just as some added icing on the cake!
Pair it with a cute coloring book and you have a great present!
Here is a quick video I put together to show you the process!
You can actually turn a plain block into a cute holder.
and even a 4×4 piece of wood (this one is my favorite!)
or this sweet sign made from your child’s handwriting
and if you still have some fleeting warm weather…check out these fun games to play using cups!
