rwb pom-pom sparklers

This project is intended for kids age 6+. These fun yarn "sparklers" are as fun to make as they are to shake! Kids will love making pom pom made with red, white and blue yarn. Just glue it onto a wood dowel or stick and wave your "sparkler" proudly!
Step 1

To make the red, white and blue pom-pom you will wrap one yarn color at a time loosely around the width of your hand 30 times. Gently slide the entire bundle of looped yarn off your hand, keeping it as still as possible so that you don’t disturb the loops. Repeat this for all three colors. Place all three layers of loops on top of each other being careful not to disturb the loops.

Step 2
Cut a piece of yarn 10” [25.4 cm] long. Carefully knot the piece of yarn as tightly as you can around the center of the bundle.
TIP: The tighter you tie the knot, the fluffier the pom-pom. Make sure you tie the knot exactly between the looped ends in order to make the pom-pom completely round.
Step 3
Snip open all the loops on both ends. Next, trim it with scissors until it’s nice and round and the yarn ends are short enough to be fluffy, not floppy.
TIP: The size of the pom-poms will vary depending on the size of the hand.
Step 4
ADULT: Hot glue the pom-pom to the top of the dowel and let the glue cool.
