Pom poms are a staple for most kid’s crafts. They are fluffy and light and can be used in countless different ways as embellishments and so much more. The soft feel of a pom pom is great for sensory play and children love using them to develop motor skills by picking them up with tweezers or using them to learn colors. They have been used for gluing to many paper crafts, and come in many different shapes and sizes for any number of games and crafts you can think of.

Here are some creative projects and inspiration using pom poms:

Paint with Pom Poms - Fantastic Fun and Learning

Clip pom poms of various sizes to clothespins and use them as paintbrushes with a quick cleanup. They are similar to sponge brushes and can be dabbed or spread to create different effects. The paint won’t splatter nearly as much as with a brush, and when you’re done, the pom pom can be thrown away instead of washing a brush.

Use pom poms in a shooter made from a cut plastic cup and a balloon. They’ll be launched with a lot of force, but you don’t have to worry about the kids hurting each other with these fluffy projectiles.

Color some Styrofoam cups to match the season. (Think a snowman for winter, a bunny or chick for spring, a sun or person wearing sunglasses for summer, and a pumpkin or ghost for fall). Find a few matching pom poms, and you have an easy toss game to keep the kids occupied on a rainy day.

Pom Pom Rain Stick

Rainbow FunLittle Wonders’ Days

Make a colorful rain stick with a clear container and multi-colored pom poms. Instead of using wood, the kids will actually be able to watch the rice fall, and it uses household materials! This easy craft will keep kids occupied with the pleasant sound and the bright colors. Color the rice as well for even more colorful fun.
