These pencils and clipboard can easily be made with items you have around the house.

Total Time: 5-10 minutes


  • toothpicks
  • yellow marker
  • pink marker
  • pencil
  • silver duct tape
  • scissors
  • square drink coaster (or similar item)
  • post it notes
  • small binder clip


  1. Cut one end off of each toothpick with a pair of scissors.
  2. Using a pencil, color the pointed end, so that it looks like pencil lead.
  3. Color the toothpick with a yellow marker, except the tapered area near the lead and where the eraser should be.
  4. Use the pink marker to color the eraser end.
  5. Wrap a small piece of silver duct tape around the end, by the eraser.
  6. For the clipboard, take the coaster and stick a small stack of sticky notes onto it fairly high up. Then use a binder clip at the top to hold the sticky notes in place.
