The pencil is a way for us to express ourselves with the written word. Imagine what life was like with the invention of the pencil, which carves woood and lead into a writing instrument. Now make your own expression with a pencil and make a pencil topper. Kids in school will love this craft, especially since everyone like making turtle crafts too.

Instructions To Make A Turtle Pencil Topper Craft :
1. Coil the piper cleaner around the pencil. You will make approximately 3-4 coils.
2. Loop the top of the pipe cleaner down making a head. There should be about an inch between where the coils stop and the head of your turtle. Cut the excess to make four turtle legs.
3. Cut out two circles to make your turtle shell. Adjust the size to fit between the head and the pipe cleaner coils where the turtle tail would go.
4. Cut out two circles to make your turtle shell. Adjust the size to fit between the head and the pipe cleaner coils where the turtle tail would go.
