Crafting with wool needn’t leave our little ones tied up in knots
Pom-poms are even more fun to make now, than when I was young. The ‘technology’ has moved on a bit, but the craft remains just as good and still has that pinch of nostalgia (not to mention screen-free fun). Nowadays, there’s no need to wait for an empty cereal box to make the cardboard template, there’s no more shoving the wool through the tiny hole and there’s no more finishing when you make a fluffy ball. Instead, there’s a reusable maker, an easy kit and whole host of exciting animals and creative ideas that start life as a pom pom.
Em is so passionate about sharing this traditional pass-time that it’s now her business! And a great one it is too. She offers lots of different pom pom craft kits – bugs & birds, farm & safari animals, rainbows & garlands and many more. Emma also offers term-time regular classes and holiday workshops for our mini crafters.
Little Devon Review
We were lucky enough to enjoy a kit from Emma at Pom Stitch Tassel which includes everything you need.
My daughter chose the flamingo kit which we enjoyed together. At 4 years old, she was able to complete the pompom by herself (and is now a full pompom making addict!) I helped cut out the smaller pieces for the beak (but a less perfectionist mummy would let the child do it!) and stick them on with a hot glue gun. Emma is generous with all the materials needed so there’s spare, should things need to be attempted twice! The instructions are clear and there are pictures to help at each stage.
My daughter then enjoyed playing proudly with her new creation!
