Materials List

  • Styrofoam ball
  • Grey paint
  • Grey felt
  • Black felt
  • Googly Eyes

These make fun pencil toppers. Simply use a dowel to twist a hole in the bottom before painting. When the koala is done and everything has dried, slide it onto a pencil!


  1. Paint the styrofoam ball grey by pouncing paint onto it.

  2. While the paint is drying, cut out an oval nose and a smile from black felt. Cut a pair of ears from grey felt.

  3. When the foam ball is dry, use tacky glue to attach the facial features.

  4. Glue the ears in place. Hold them for 2-3 minutes so that they don't slump under their own weight.
