Five Yellow Pencils

Kathryn Roach over at Fun With Friends at Storytime made up a set of five pencils and a cute rhyme to go with them. It is perfect for the toddler age. I chose a piece of clip art from Shutterstock to use as a pattern for the pencils. I was running short on time when I made these so they aren’t as detailed as other things I have created. At some point I will make a piece of notebook paper to go with them.
