Tell us about yourself!
Looks like you may have accidentally skipped the tedious but necessary fluffing step. Step 6. Working in sections, take two strips at a time and pull the two strips in opposite directions (see picture). Repeat on all the strips until the entire pom-pom is full and poofy.Be careful not to pull TOO hard since the plastic is thin and will stretch and tear if the pom-pom is “fluffed” too vigorously.
at least not one that did not involve specialty types of foam and and stuff like that. I wanted something easy and made out of commonly found items.
My niece made him some for his birthday party by printing out a picture of one side of a companion cube a few times and gluing them to square cardboard boxes. She also made him portals by cutting ovals out of cardboard and covering them in aluminum foil and painting the edges orange or blue. I think she saw the ideas on Pinterest, but we never found a tutorial for a DIY easy Portal gun.
It would be a great addition. I don't know much about LEDs and my kiddo often breaks toys that have them with his rough play, but for someone using this as a costume prop that might be a nice improvement!
I agree! My 4 yr old was not ready for a serrated knife, but many of the other parts he could have helped with.
