Introduction: Chick PomPoms
Make your own chick. Perfect for Easter or to help teach about birds. Fun and easy to do.
Step 1: Main PomPom
Wrap around a fork until it looks like this.
Step 2: Keeping It Together (Legs)
Put a longer piece of wool through the centre gap in the fork underneath the wool you just wrapped. This will later become the legs.
Step 3: Tie Knot
Tie a knot around the wrapped wool. Make sure this is done very tightly so it doesn't fall apart later.
Step 4: Remove Fork
Take the wool off the fork and make sure the knot is tight, doubling up for extra security.
Step 5: Cutting the PomPom
Carefully cut the two sides of the pompom, where it has looped. After doing the cutting you may need to 'fluff' up the pompom.
Step 6: Make a Face
Using paper and pencil crayons, create your face; including eyes and a beak. Cut it out.
Alternatively you could use googly eyes.
Step 7: Stick on the Face
Use glue or tape to affix the face to the body.
Step 8: Complete
You have now finished your cute little PomPom Chick. Are there other animals you could create?
