BACK TO SCHOOL WEEK - Pencil Exchange Party

Welcome to Day 6 of
at Rook No. 17

Happy weekend everyone!  
I hope you've enjoyed some of this week's back-to-school features.

Today Brittany of One Charming Party has kindly offered to share her ideas for a back-to-school pencil exchange and cute customized erasers.

Kids going back to school? A pencil exchange would be so fun to do at a back to school party. Your kids can invite neighbors or school friends and if guests all bring a pack of pencils to share everyone will get some fresh, fun, new pencils to start out the year. I had these custom pencils made at Explicitly Yours Pencils. What’s a pencil without an eraser? These are just simple erasers from the store covered with bits of cute scrapbooking paper. (Wouldn’t they be cute as a teacher gift?)

  1. I am LOVING this idea. This even works for home school groups, etc. I've really been enjoying this theme throughout the week. Thank you!
