Pom Pom Frame


We had a very special birthday in our family last week, and Ethan wanted to make Daddy something special.  I asked him what he could make, and he said that he wanted to make a caterpillar...well we could make a simple pom pom caterpillar, but we talked about what else we could add to it, and the pom pom frame idea was born!

  • paper (we used card, but you could use a photo instead)
  • coloured pencils or crayons
  • lolly / popsicle sticks
  • pom poms
  • glue
  • magnet

We started by cutting out the card into a square (the length of the lolly stick on each side) then Ethan drew a lovely picture for Daddy.  He drew himself, Daddy and Ivy (he ran out of space when it came time to draw me!) And it was nice because he really took the time to draw everyone carefully.  Next he put glue on the back of each stick and stuck them along the sides of the paper.

Before sticking the pom poms on we stuck a magnet to the back of the picture so that we could hang it up on the fridge when it was done.  Then he chose which pom poms he wanted to use, he was very specific about which colours he wanted and in which order.  Then he put glue along the sticks that he wanted pom poms on (just the top and the bottom) and stuck them all on.

Daddy absolutely loved it, and Ethan was so excited to give it to him on his birthday!  It would make a great Father's Day gift as well!
