Newspaper Pom-Poms

These pom-poms are easy to make. They make a pretty shush-shushing noise, and are fun to run around with in the yard. For this project, you only need a newspaper, scissors, and some masking tape.

First, read the comics

Always Read the Comics

Roll a tube with 3 or 4 sheets of newspaper

Fun Childrens Craft

Crafts Project Cutting Tape

Start at the end of the tube that you did not tape. Cut newspaper into long strips about an inch wide. Stop cutting at the halfway point.

Slowly twist the layers loose and pull straight out at the same time. Try not to rip the newspaper strips.

If you pull the newspaper out just a few inches, you will have a compact pom-pom.

If you pull it out several inches, you'll have a taller, "palm tree" pom-pom.
