Back to School Bug Buddie!!!

This project's design was influenced greatly by my 13 year old daughter. Can you find the hidden message from this friendly functioning school supply creation?

Pencil Top Erasers (can be painted white with Wite-out)

Pencil Grips

Paper Clips

Paper Protectors

1) Cut Pencil Grips in half.

2) Hot Glue the Pencil Grips onto the calculator.

3) Cut Long Erasers into desired leg length.
