Jazz up your kids’ boring pencils with a little bit of washi tape. It’s super easy to make these Smarty Pants Pencils, and your kids will love showing them off to all their classmates. You can use washi tape to cover other writing utensils like pens and markers to get kids excited for school. Instead of putting your child’s name on all their school supplies, use this fun tape to distinguish their stuff from their classmates’.
Washi tape can also freshen up your home decor. Let your kids transform a plain old glass vase into a whimsical Swirly Vase! It’s sure to brighten any room that you put it in. Since it’s easy to peel off, you can change the colors of the tape to correspond to the season. You could use bold hues for summer, pastels for spring and spooky orange and black for Halloween. The possibilities are endless!
