KJ made this super cute kangaroo pencil holder. I just love the little pouch (the cup). She uses it to store colored pencils on her desk.
I found the printable pattern and instructions from Danielle’s Place. (Just scroll down a bit. On the site, it is called the Kangaroo Planter Craft.)

Rather than using brown cardstock, I let KJ paint ALL the pieces (cardstock, popsicle stick, and cup) so that the kangaroo would look more uniform and all his body parts would be the shade of brown. But, you could very easily use brown cardstock, or brown foam for the face, arms, and legs. Lots of options!
