Eraser Critters

Just had to share this one! One of the leaders brought it to our Service Unit meeting as an idea for a thank you gift to teachers who share their rooms with us, so we can meet in the school.

  1. Start with a rhombus-shaped eraser.
  2. Stick 4 push pins where legs ought to be.
  3. Stick 2 push pins where ears ought to be and cover with pencil top erasers.
  4. Attach 2 small sequins to the eraser with map pins where the eyes ought to be.
  5. Cut a length of rubber-band, cut a forked tongue in one end, and attach the straight end to the eraser with a map pin where the mouth should be.
  6. Attach a feather to the eraser with a map pin where the tail ought to be.

Quick, cute, and inexpensive. Even useful if you dissect the little guy :-).
