My sons have declared a new holiday.
National Sharpen Your Pencil Day.
The celebration will be launched March 1st, 2012.
Because you see, we have a lot of pencils – but they are always dull. It is frustrating to grab a pencil to jot a quick note, only to have it scuff your paper. Or break. Or not even be sharpened.
Join us for National Sharpen Your Pencil Day on March 1st. (Click to Tweet) We will provide a linky and we need you to provide some dialogue . . . some pictures . . . some kids in action looking for hidden graphite.
In exchange we will give you some games and activities . . . and someone will win a new pencil sharpener.
Perhaps a manual pencil sharpener . . . one that ALWAYS gets the job done . . .
or an electric pencil sharpener . . . which is what is in our school room.
We look forward to seeing all of your pencils. If you would like to be included in the March 1st blog post, please send our mom a picture of your unsharpened pencils. (Here is her email: thegranolamom4god at gmail dot com)
Remember: don’t sharpen your pencils until March 1st!
