Easy Back To School Kids Craft Pencil Snake Toppers

There’s only two weeks left of the Summer Holidays and it’s time to start getting organised with school uniforms, books and everything else.

These pencil snake toppers are a fun and easy craft to make with your kids.

A great way to get them excited about going back to school and to have a little surprise to look forward in their pencil case and to show their friends. You don’t need to be one bit crafty to be able to make these and you only need a few things too.

How To Make Them:

  • Twist a pipe cleaner around the top of a pencil and then stretch it out so it looks like a spiral shape. The pipe cleaners I used are quite small but you can get much larger ones that would be much better and give a longer spiral effect.
  • Pick two pom poms in the colour of your choice.
  • Stick your googly eyes onto two pom poms and glue them to the top of your pipe cleaners.
