Popsicle Stick Pointer

Popsicle Stick Pencil Pointer

Its back to school time!

Since we have a kid going into grade 1 and a kid starting kindergarten we made some popsicle stick pointers to follow along with reading and help keep us on track when reading alone.

What you need

Plain popsicle sticks

Markers

Step 1

Make a pink block at one end, followed by a silver or grey block immediately after. This will make the eraser of the pencil.

Step 2

Using tan or light brown on the other end of the stick draw a triangle to make the point of the pencil.  Using a black marker, add a small dot on the very edge make the pencil lead.

Step 3

Using the tan or light brown marker make a zig zag edge at the bottom of your triangle. This will make it look like the pencil has been sharpened. Then colour in the middle section in yellow.

Step 4

Grab a book and point to the words as you read.
