Cool! I have always wanted to try to make these! What age do you think kids will be able to help along, as far as fine motor skills go?

I have to make 9 tiny ones for a bowling set I am making for my 18 mo old grandson. the "pins" are bunnies so of course they need tails. On a pompom that small I will usually just wrap yarn around two fingers until I think it is full enough. Then slip it off my fingers and tie it tightly in the middle. Now you have a figure eight. Cut the loops on each side, this should be able to do with one pass each. Take your funny looking thing and start rolling it around in your hands briskly and it will form into a pompom. Since your wraps were probably uneven, mine always are, you will now need to trim it to make it look even. just start cutting away until you have an even ball. And there you are. This only works when making very small pompoms. Use Micaela's directions for regular ones. Also this only works with cotton yarn as the yarn untwists with the rolling in your hands to give you a full pompom. Yet if you need a tiny pompom it's an easy way to do one. Thank you for the post Micaela, I've always thought pompoms were gret fun especially for children to make.


How fun that you can make tiny pom-poms on your fingers! I'm going to try that. Thanks Terri!


Good question Stephanie! I think it depends on the child but a 3 or 4 year old could probably start helping a little bit. Don't leave them alone with the scissors though! :)

This is so cute! My four year old daughter has been wanting some rooter poms to wave at her brothers soccer games. She loves cheering for him. I think I'll give these a try. Thanks for sharing!


Sounds like these pom-poms will be perfect for cheering at a soccer game! Thank for stopping by Holly!
