These pencil toppers are so cute and easy to put together using plastic dinosaur figurines (easily found at any craft or toy store for a good value in a pack — or raid your child’s stash). Just drill a hole until the dinosaurs fit over the pencil eraser, paint them your child’s favorite color and you’re done! If your kid’s not into dinos, this would totally work for any other creature your child fancies.
