Pom Pom Caterpillars on Leaves

Pom Poms are a big trend in fashion and interiors this season. Despite their ascent on the trendy scale, I have always loved pom poms. I’m not sure if it’s because they remind me of my own childhood, or because they make me happy when all the bright colours are pooled together.

I had a bag of pom poms in the craft box and I was looking for ways to craft with them with my youngest girls. As you know the craft has to be easy for them to keep them stimulated and let’s be honest, kids will have their own imagination when you decide to give them an activity to do.

With the arrival of spring and with many brown leaves scattered on our travels during the walk to school and back, I decided we’d put those pom poms to good use and create some pom pom caterpillars on leaves.  They were a lot of fun to create and easy to for little hands to handle.
