Pool Noodle Pencils by Planet Happy Smiles

I saw a yellow pool noodle and it just popped in my brain that I new I had to make it into a pencil.
So, I started to plan it out and collect materials.

What I learned:
1. I should have made my erasers a little shorter.
2. If you want a sharper tip, use "pointy" cones.
3. You can make them any length you want.
4. You can also use the colors to make map pencils or crayons!
I hope you LOVE them!  I can't wait to add one to my photo booth & hang the others.

I finally wrapped our cords with Washi Tape.
(I have no idea where this idea originated but it is smart!)
  Now my mom will know which ones are her cords and which ones belong to me.

I have seen these on Pinterest and I knew I just had to make some for my class.

I ran out to get Velcro and Jumbo craft sticks.
I got to Walmart and I found a pack of 75 craft sticks for the project and then ...
WHAT? No Velcro!
I drove around and found some at Dollar City.  
Craft Sticks, Velcro
Here is my final project!

I already let my own kiddos play with them and they had a BLAST!
My kids made this:

If I can make them, anyone can make them.
It actually made me want to cook some more.
If you want to view the recipe, it is from TIPHERO.

I also made that very popular Pinterest 15 minute shrimp!

My last project was a get ready for next year kinda thing. I printed, cut, and laminated my helper cards.
I love that each kiddo has a job and no one is left out. The students are excited to come to school on Monday and see what job they may have.
I also love that it helps my classroom run so smoothly.
