Activity Designer

With yarn and the right tools, kids can create a fuzzy little creature out of a few yards of yarn! They'll have a blast decorating and playing with a new pom-pom friend.

How We Did It

Pom-Pom Creature

Gather your materials. With scissors, cut a piece of yarn about 5 inches long. Set it aside--you'll use it later to finish the pom-pom creature.

Pom-Pom Creature

Hold the pom-pom maker in one hand. Using your other hand, start winding the yarn around and around. Don't wrap it too tightly or it may be difficult to remove from the winder later.  Use about 25 yards of yarn to create one big, fluffy pom-pom creature.

Pom-Pom Creature

When you run out of yarn, take the cut piece of yarn and tie it around the middle of the yarn between the arms of the pom-pom maker.

Pom-Pom Creature

Pull the yarn off the pom-pom maker. Take the scissors and cut both ends of the looped yarn. You may need to ask an adult for help with this. As you cut, make sure not to cut the piece of yarn that was used to tie the middle.

Pom-Pom Creature

Decorate your new friend with googly eyes. Cut out felt shapes and glue them on to make feet or arms. You can even use a fork as a mini pom-pom maker to create smaller creatures!
