Do you ever get tired of losing your pencils and pens? Well if you do, you have come to the right people to help you. We have come up with an idea. Our idea is for you kids to make a toilet paper roll pencil pouch.. It is really easy to make, so little kids can do it too. This pencil pouch could be for anyone. The materials and instructions are down below for you to start your adorable pencil pouch. Ready, Set, GO!

The first thing that you will need to do for this project is get out all of the materials. The materials that will be needed for this project are: paint, paint brushes, toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls, a hot glue gun, newspaper (or something else to cover your work surface) and scissors. You can get these supplies at any crafts store like Michaels.

Step One:

Paint the toilet paper roll with whatever color paint you want.

Step Two

After painting, wait for the paint to dry. Once the paint is dry, get another piece of cardboard and cut a circle that can fit on the end of the toilet paper. 

Step Three:

After putting on the smaller piece of cardboard, cut around the edge of it to make it fit with the toilet paper roll. Make sure that the piece of cardboard is glued on tightly.

Step Four

Next you will need to put any of the materials that you would like to keep inside of the pencil pouch.

NOW, enjoy your toilet paper roll pencil pouch!
