Crafternoon – Castle Pencil Holder

Crafternoon 7-7-20

Imagine Your Story – Summer Learning Program

Join us for a fun craft project below. We will be making a castle pencil holder.

Craft is recommended for ages 4-9, but any age is welcome to participate! (Younger kids will likely need help/supervision from an adult.)

You will need the following supplies:

  • 2 empty toilet paper rolls
  • 1 empty paper towel roll (can use 2 more toilet paper rolls taped together if no paper towel roll available)
  • Paint (if you do not have paint, you could use something else, like markers, crayons, or colored pencils, but paint will look best)
  • Paintbrush (medium size is best)
  • Glue (liquid glue will work better than a glue stick)
  • Colored paper (1 sheet)
  • White paper (1 sheet)
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard (should be at least 18 cm x 14 cm, but it can be bigger)
  • Small stick (like a toothpick, cocktail stick, or tiny twig)
  • Coloring tools (markers, colored pencils, crayons, or colored pens would all work)
  • Paper clip (optional, but this can help to hold one of the pieces together while glue dries)
  • Newspaper (optional, but helpful to put painted items on)
  • Small cup of water (optional, but good to have if you need to rinse your paintbrush)
  • Paper towel or rag (good for wiping messy hands & paintbrushes on!)
  • Paper plate or other item to use as a paint palette

Video will remain available online.
