What you'll need: Pencils, hot glue, red and silver acrylic paint, and red and silver pipe cleaners
How to make it: Using a small paintbrush, paint the pencils red or silver (or just buy red or silver pencils). While they're drying, mold the red pipe cleaners into heart shapes and mold the silver pipe cleaners into spirals (leaving some "un-molded" space at the end to wrap around the pencil). Wrap the end of the pipe cleaner around the pencil and add a little hot glue to hold in place. You can put a bunch in a jar with ribbon to give as a gift to your kid's teacher or just give one to each classmate.
