This was a fun way to use my new Beall threader. My son is in grade one, and since he’s used to being outside nine hours a day the transition to sitting in school has been a challenge. The teacher said he’s constantly moving, and thankfully she is open to ideas to occupy his hands. I’m hoping this pencil topper will help.

Those crazy little people have so much energy. Nice idea and well done, looks like a fun thing to tinker with while you listen to miss Beasley drone on about the letter “R”. Cheer up bucko, summer will come again.

Looks like a good job with the threader. If the teacher don’t mind then by all means send it to school with your son.

I know. I think it’s interesting that you can make a basic object out of wood, and people want to touch it. It seems like metal and plastic don’t have quite the same effect.
