This craft is quick, easy and fun!

Start with a chenille stem. Fold the stem in half, and slide both ends through the button holes. Then give the loose ends a twist to secure the button. Next, carefully wrap the chenille stem around the eraser end of the pencil. It’s that simple! Now students have an animal friend to work on assignments with.
