    Pompoms. Choose two colors of Crayola® Washable Markers to draw stripes on a coffee filter. Cover the entire filter, even the reverse side. Fold filter in half, and in half again. Beginning at one end of the rounded edge, use your Crayola Scissors to cut thin strips into, but not through, the folded filter. Tie string around the bottom. Fluff out the strips for a colorful pompom.

    Pennant. On white paper, draw a large isosceles triangle (two long sides are the same length). With markers, color your pennant with school colors.

  • 4.

    On a separate paper, draw and color the school’s initials. Cut them out and attach them to your pennant with Crayola Glue Sticks. Draw your school logo, symbols, or designs such as stars, paws or, #1. Color, cut them out, and attach them to your pennant.

    To add pompoms, punch holes in each pompom and your pennant. Tie them on with yarn or string.

    Bracelets. Cut a wide strip of heavy fabric long enough to go around your wrist one and a half times. Color it with your markers. Fray both sides and cut a slit at one end. Slip the opposite end of fabric through the slit.

    For a braided bracelet, cut three strips of fabric that go twice around your wrist. Color them using different colors of markers. Tie one end together. Braid the strips. Loosely tie the other end closed around your wrist.
