Magnets aren’t just for keeping lists and photos in place on your fridge – they also serve as some much-needed decoration. A colourful, positive ambiance can greatly influence one`s day, it can construct that strong feeling or belonging that makes one feel comfortable, at home.
Coming up with ways to make learning fun and still educational can sometimes be a challenge. If you are educating young children, it may be even more of a challenge as you look for ways to keep them from getting easily distracted. Using manipulatives can always make a difference.
Why only kids, this is something I would love to put up on my work table desk too.

I think they are meant for little kids, teenagers and even adults.

I will be sharing the procedure of ‘How to make a Pom Pom’. After quite a few failing attempts of making a Pom Pom, I have finally found a perfect way to make them intact. Cast a glance below
How to make Pom Pom?
- Glue gun
Step #1. Make Cardboard Pom-Pom Templates
As you can see I have made rectangle templates. By making a few sizes of templates, you can make several sizes of pom-poms.
Next, cut a slit to get to the center. You may want to widen the slit a tiny amount, to make it easier to pass yarn through. Take a piece of yarn and tie a knot through the slit.
Step #2.Start Wrapping Yarn around the Template
Begin wrapping yarn around the cardboard template. Once you finish a layer, use your glue gun for the second layer to stick to the first layer for the pom pom to stay intact.
Step #3.Wrap the Yarn Until the Template Is Full
Wrap the cardboard ring template is full and then wrap it some more.
Make sure it’s very plump.
Step #4. Tie the Yarn
Remove the template and with the first knot you tied, take the yarn around as tightly you can and tie one more knot. Leave the ends long. Make it into a circle shape.
Step #5. Cut the edges
Start snipping through the edge of the circle. Be sure to cut through every strand of yarn. Sharp scissors with a small point make this part easier.
Step #6. Shape the Pom-Pom
At this point, your pom-pom probably looks a little odd. To fix this, trim the yarn to even out the shape. It’s a bit like giving the pom-pom a haircut!
Hold onto the long yarn ties and work all around the pom-pom. Keep turning it as you trim so it doesn’t end up lopsided.
Step #6. Fluff the pom pom and finish trimming.
When the pom-pom looks like it’s almost done, gently roll it in your hands. This fluffs the pom-pom and reveals any areas that may need a little more trimming.
Trim and repeat as needed.
Use the long yarn ties to attach your pom-pom to your project.
