He actually ended up LOVING this simple activity. He has always been a fan of dumping things out and putting them back in. By using yarn pom-poms it has become a much quieter game than
dumping out the utensil drawer or buckets of lego's. And he can throw them without getting in trouble! Win-win!!
I chose some colors of yarn and decided to make 2 balls with each color.
I wrapped the yarn around my pointer and middle finger several times. I decided to wrap all the balls different sizes.
You'll need a piece of yarn that is about 5-6 inches long
Slide the yarn off your fingers keeping it in an "o" shape. Then tie the piece of yarn around the center so that the "o" turns into an"8".
You are going to want to tie a VERY tight double knot. An extra hand/index finger comes in really handy at this point, if you can find one!
You will now start cutting all the loops on each side. Make sure to search through get them all.
Fluff up your cute little pom-pom and trim all the pieces that are long so that everything is even!
Because I am not a fan of attempting to remove labels, I found a cute piece of scrapbooking paper that I already had in my stash. I measured and cut a piece to cover the Peanuts label. I used Elmer's craft glue to adhere the paper.
I think this fun activity turned out pretty darn cute! I'd love to hear what you think!
