pom-pom snowballs

This project is intended for kids ages 6+. Let your kids bring the snowball fight indoors for some old fashion fun! These soft, squishy snowballs are made from yarn so less mess!
Step 1

First, cut about 10" [25.4 cm] of yarn from your first skein and stretch it out on your working surface in front of you.

Step 2

Now, take the yarn end directly from the skein and wrap it around your hand 30-50 times, depending on the thickness of the yarn. Cut the yarn to detach from the skein. Carefully slide the loops from your hand.
TIP: Be careful to not disturb the loops.

Step 3

Lay the loops on top of the stretched-out yarn piece from Step 1. Tie the yarn piece around the outside of the loops, in the middle, and tie in a double knot.

Step 4

Cut open the loops on both sides of the knot to create your pom-pom.

Step 5

Shape your pom-pom into a nice, round snowball shape with scissors.
