Topping back to school pencils in style is a great way to get everyone excited for all the writing and school work ahead. Inspired by the fun loving animals of the upcoming animated film, The Wild Life, we created a few wild and spunky animal pencil toppers of our own, including one of our favorites Scrubby the goat. I love the bright dose of fun these toppers bring to our back to school supplies. Crafting them is easy enough for the kids to create their own set for school this year.
Whether we are laughing at Scrubby the goat or rooting against the not so nice Mel & May the pencil toppers are a fun way to bring the hilarious animals of this big screen movie to life.
Wild Animal Pencil Toppers
To make the Wild Animal Pencil Toppers you will need:
- Wild animal toys
- A paint brush
- A small drill bit
1. Start by painting each of the animals in a bright color.
2. Add glitter, tassels and anything that will make your animal pencil toppers even more fun. Allow the toppers to fully dry.
3. Drill a hole in the center bottom of each animal about the size of the pencil top. Remove the eraser and glue the animal onto the top of the pencil instead. Get ready to bask in having the cutest pencils in class.
We often try to get out to see a movie and just have a little fun the first few weeks of school. It’s a nice break for the kids and there are always fun movies popping up this time of year. I love a good hearted comedy that isn’t afraid to laugh at itself, and what kid wouldn’t want to be transported to an island where animals rule right about now. We can’t wait to take a break from studying on September 9th to enjoy this fun family movie.
