Do you have a little one in your life who loves crafts? Well, this is the post for you! I’ve rounded up some awesome pom pom crafts for toddlers and preschoolers. Pom pom crafts are inexpensive, and the only materials needed are pom poms, scissors, or a few common household items. So go ahead, grab some scissors, glue sticks, and get crafting!
Types of Pom Poms
There are two types of pom poms you can use. The first one, the small store-bought balls, work best for preschoolers and toddlers who don’t have much coordination yet to make DIY yarn pom-poms at home. These are great for building fine motor skills and coordination!
The second type of pom poms is a DIY yarn pom pom that you or your older kids (who can handle scissors) can make at home. So if you’ve got older siblings who want to join in then check out this easy tutorial for making pom poms.
