Keeping your desk area neat and organized will help you when it's time to sit down and work on your homework or write or draw. A good organizational tool that you can create yourself is a pen and pencil holder. You can make it colorful and fancy or just stick to a basic design. It's fun to create a pencil and pen holder that shows off your own unique style.
The first thing to do is to cover your can with the construction paper or wallpaper. Lay the can on top of the paper so that you can measure it for height and length. Once your paper is measured, cut it to shape and either glue it down or roll masking tape to stick it to the container.
Now the fun begins and you can let your imagination run wild. You can use your markers, crayons, glitter, pictures, photographs or anything else you have around the house that strikes your fancy.
Once your pen and pencil holder is completed, you're on your way to an organized desk-and who knows, maybe everyone in the family will want you to help them make a customized holder too. They also make great gifts for your friends or family-or for your teacher.
