Make a friend in minutes

A fun craft project to make a cute little creature out of a pom-pom.

Overview

  1. Cut out a circle of card a bit smaller than your pom-pom.
  2. Secure a safety pin to the back of the card with a piece of sticky tape.
  3. Decorate the pom-pom to make a fuzzy friend, using the googly eyes, pipe cleaners etc, and attach it to the card so it will stand upright. (You may find it easier to attach the pom-pom to the card before decorating it.)
  4. For an extended activity, you could make your own pom-poms from wool.
