Where is a Pencil?

Now that school has been in session for over a month, my kids have somehow misplaced many of the new pencils we bought for them to use while doing homework. Pencils are kind of like socks around here. They like to disappear.

When I found out about the Fancy Pants Challenge this month to create something school themed, I knew that I wanted to create something that will hopefully help us will the missing pencil problem.

I altered a metal can with a bunch of Fancy Pants Off to School goods and created (what I hope) will be a happy place for many pencils for months to come.

There is still time to enter the Fancy Pants School Challenge and you can find all of the info here.
If you want to see other school themed project ideas, you can check out this post. 

Now if I could just come up with a solution for keeping track of matching pairs of socks...


  1. Loveeeeeeeeeee this!!! Loving that heart!! :):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. I need to make one of these happy little pencil homes for us. Great idea! As for the missing socks, just have everyone put their dirty socks in a mesh zipper bag and throw it in the washer.

  3. this is FANTASTIC! we have the same problem at our house!!

  4. Love it!! We have the same problem--now I have a solution! Miss you!

  5. what an awesome pencil holder! We have that problem with pencils and scissors lol.
