5 Adorable Pom Pom Crafts For Kids:
There are plenty Pom Pom craft ideas for preschoolers to older kids and here is a list of the top 10 crafts that you and your kids will absolutely love:
1. Pom Pom With Lids:
Pom pom and lids is a great combination and simple too! How? Here it follows:
- Take plastic lids of different sizes and cut off the sides. Make a hole in the centre of the lid and also make a cut on one side of the ring that you will get.
- Cover the ring with the yarn. If you want multi-coloured pom poms, then take two or three yarns of different colours.
- Role the yarns, holding them together, around the rings, making them pass through the cut that you had made in the side.
- Once the entire ring is filled with yarn, hold it tight and tie up the ends to stop it from loosening.
- Place a scissor in between yarn that is bound around the sides of the ring and cut it carefully, so that you have several loose ends around the ring.
- Put together both the rings and tie them, to make your creative craft.
