Giraffe Note Holder Craft (Writer's Workshop)

Harry used to help me with craft ideas for Vacation Bible School and Hobby Club at church. The giraffe note holder is one that I even use at work. It just has a square block of wood on the bottom for a stand, a dowel inserted into the middle of it and a block of wood with a clothespin connected to the top. Harry cut out all the parts and the children just painted it. Later, Harry cut out a whole body that looked like a giraffe and used a piece of brown yarn for a tail. It makes a great holder for a paper I'm typing from at the computer.

This is a Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop prompt: to share a craft idea.

I don't know why he painted it pink instead of yellow unless it was because he had pink paint left over that he wanted to use up. It's a very useful craft which the kids enjoyed making!
