Pom Poms!

Look what we have made this week!! I had the idea from a blog I follow, where there is a step by step tutorial They started as a pile of old clothes that were too battered to be handed on:
And after a long time of wrapping and snipping they became this:
My recommendations for doing this with young children would be:
  • Make small hoops of cardboard and small pom poms - they are much more achievable than the huge one we attempted!
  • Use small scisors to snip the fabric open.... they cut easier than large ones once it is wound!
My two and four year old children did this with me.... the 2 year old with support and the four year old independently.  The little one especially loves it!!
