DIY Pencil Holder/Tablet Stand from Waste Paper

Tristan has been studying in a traditional year for the past 6 years. But this school year 2021-2022, I transferred Tristan into a different school. An inclusive school that can best cater to his needs and condition. It's been a long time coming, and I'm glad we finally did it. I know I haven't talked about this event in our life yet as I don't think I'm ready. But, in time.

So, in this new school, they've been doing a lot of Performance Tasks/Activities. Since they are still distance learning, all of these activities are recorded. I find them challenging especially the arts and crafts as I am not that crafty, so is Tristan. But, I admit, I am kind of enjoying them. So, let me share with you one of the activities they've recently done- DIY Pencil Holder/Tablet Stand from Waste Paper.

This DIY Pencil Holder/Tablet Stand is made of waste paper, emphasizing reusing and recycling stuff instead of just throwing them away. Also, the end product is so nice and useful in organizing stuff on your desk.

DIY Pencil Holder/Tablet Stand from Waste Paper

Here are the materials needed: 

  • old magazines, newspapers, books, or notebooks
  • stick
  • glue
  • cardboard
How to do it:

Make paper rolls using waste paper and a stick to help roll them. You should have the following paper rolls:

Once you have all the paper rolls needed, it's time to assemble them! How? Watch Tristan doing it in this short video we made.  :) 

You can paint it after or leave it as is, just like what we did. This is a great activity to keep kids busy, spark their creativity as well as teach them valuable lessons such as recycling and being organized.

Happy crafting!
