Tips

1. Draw the yellow rectangle body of the pencil first. Add the outlines next and carefully do the eraser last (if you try to color the yellow inside the black outline, it smears easily).

2. If it's humid, the condensation on the cold cheese does make it trickier to get the marker to adhere, so you may want to have something handy to wipe them down with.

3. If you opt to use sharp cheddar cheese sticks, those are already yellow, so no need to "color in the pencil"—saves a step!
