My daughter started Kindergarten this past week. It was a little rough for her after a few days. By Thursday she was exhausted and upset. I never realized my child was such a perfectionist. I'm hoping after a few weeks we will settle into a routine and it will get a little easier for her. Here she is the first day of school. She was happy that day.
Now onto the craft project. The teacher had a wishlist for the school year so we went out and bought a gift card at one of the places. I wanted to attach something cute to it and found instructions to make this cute little candy pencil. I could not even tell you who I need to give credit to for this idea because I found it in multiple places all over blogland. Anyway, you take a package of Rolos and a Hershey Kiss and tape them together. Then you wrap it with yellow cardstock. I went ahead and folded the cardstock so it would have the ridges like a pencil has and pinked the edge where the Hershey Kiss meets up with the Rolos. Then you put a little pink circle on top for the eraser. I thought it turned out so cute!
