Create your own Teacher’s Day Pen Holder Gift in 5 easy steps!
Step 1 Get a small box that would be big enough to hold pens and markers. Then, cut strips of yellow or cream paper. Cut the ends to make it pointed like a sharpened pencil. Paste it on the box and make more until you cover all sides.
Step 2 Now let’s make this pencil holder cute and colorful! Cut strips of colored paper of the same size as the one in the previous step (except that it doesn’t have a pointed tip). Paste it on top of each of the cream-colored pencils, so it will look like the body of the pencil. Use a different color or make a pattern! Do this until all sides are covered.
Step 3 Get the colored pens and choose the same color as the body of the pencil. Draw a small triangle on the tip of the pencil and color it. Do the same to all colored pencils!

Step 4 Cut a small rectangle on black colored paper or cardstock. Next, cut out a white rectangle that is just a bit smaller than the black one. Glue the black rectangle on one side of the box, then the white one on top of it. Now it looks like a neat frame, right?
Step 5 Write the name of your kid’s teacher inside the frame!
There you have it! Your kid’s teacher will be so happy to receive this! This kid-made pen holder can also be given as a back-to-school teacher gift, end-of-year gift, or American education week gift - and on many other occasions throughout the school year. Plus, your preschooler will also have lots of fun doing this while also practicing Kindergarten skills and exploring his creativity!
