Best of waste – pencil shavings


  1. Sharpen the pencil, taking care not to break the shavings. Try to get long, unbroken shavings.
  2. Cut one ice cream stick in half and stick the two pieces on the remaining stick, in the shape of ‘V’.
  3. Now curl the shavings very carefully to form flowers. Stick these flowers to the ends of the sticks on either side.
  4. Paint the shavings in bright colors like flowers!
  5. Put in a small vase.
