We hold them every day, staring at there points as they scribble our notes on the paper. So hum drum, so boring. Why must I constantly look at these bland ever present pens and pencils. The most entertainment I get from them is an occasional nibble as I unceremoniously munch on a pencil spreading my teeth marks up and down the sides like a corn cob. If only there was something to make my pencil into a toy so I could stare at it in wonder and let it spark my imagination. What if I made a toy that could just stay on the top of my pencil and bring me ridiculous amounts of joy.
I got it, I need to make some fantastic kids pencil topper crafts. There are so many characters I love, I know I can recreate lots of them as dolls to strap onto my eraser. I can also decorate my pens and pencils with colors and colored tape. The tape could also cover up all those teeth marks I left behind, hiding my habit from the world.
