Quill Activity Tutorial

Want to step up your writing game with a fancy writing utensil? Have we got the activity for you!

Come along as we create a one-of-a-kind quill to satisfy all of your writing needs.


  1. Add a glue dot at the top of the pen (not the cap!).
  2. Stick the feather to it.
  3. Add 5-6 more glue dots around the sides of the pen. Be sure to include one at the very top and at the part closest to the cap (without touching it).
  4. Wind the string around the pen from the top to where the pen and pen cap meet.
  5. Cut the string so that the end of it sticks to a glue dot.
  6. Optional: add more glue dots around the cap of the pen, starting from the top.
  7. Wind the string around the cap and cut it so the end of the string sticks to the glue dot. 

There you have it!
