1 fork plastic or metal
1 set of googly eyes
1 small pom pom for nose
1 magnet for the back
a ball of yarn of choice
1 pair of scissors
This should be an easy child project but assistance may be needed from an adult dependent upon the child's age.
Start by winding the yarn around the tongs of a fork. The more yarn you wind, the fuller and bigger you pom creature will become. Be careful to not wind the yarn too tight.
Slide the tied yarn off of the end of your fork and cut open the outside loops.
Fluff up your pom and glue on googly eyes, pom pom nose and a magnet on the back. Allow time for everything to dry before you play with it or use it as a magnet. If you want a larger pom, wind the yarn around 3-4 fingers and repeat the above process.
Change your colors to create Elmo - Red yarn, The Grouch - Blue yarn (glue him inside of a bottle cap to look like a trash can and put the magnet on the cap) or Cookie Monster - Green Yarn. Have fun and create an entire family of pom creatures and give them your own names!
