A Back to School Activity You Can Use!

The Easiest Back to School Activity

Back to School Activity

This back to school activity took only a few minutes to make, and it comes in quite handy. I actually put some pens and markers in mine and was surprised at how much it could hold! Make your own, and see for yourself!
To get started, here's what you'll need:


  • Construction paper
  • One sheet protector
  • Colored markers, stickers, and whatever else you want to use to decorate
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Hole puncher
  • Velcro


    1. Fold a piece of construction paper into thirds.

    2. Unfold the construction paper and cut off the corners of one end to create the flap of an envelope.

    7. Fold the construction paper as shown in the picture, so that you end up with what looks like an envelope. Punch four holes on each side of the envelope.

    9. Stick opposite velcro pieces, one on the flap of the envelope, the other where the flap meets the back of the envelope, so that you can close it.

    Congratulations! You've made your very own pencil case!
