Sarah says: This is a lovely way to help children anticipate starting school. I must admit the idea is not mine though, 25 years after I started school I can still picture the one I made with my mum, using an old cereal box as the backing.
This bead figure pencil topper is a quick and easy craft for kids. Perhaps they could have a go at making them at a party or for "Back to school". Kids can really use their imagination to create these!
