This make is great for developing your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they create a paper cone, attach it to the cardboard tube, paste the tissue paper onto the pencil shape and then paint the pencil case to create the finished item. The make is a bit fiddly in places, so you'll need to be on hand in case your child needs some help.
How to extend the magic
Your child could use an old loo roll holder to make a smaller version of the pencil case to keep crayons in. Or you help your child to make a really big pencil case from a large cardboard tube (about a metre in length). You could use this to roll up some of their favourite pictures and posters and store them away safely in their bedroom. A bit like a memory box but for old pictures!
