Other Fall Kids Crafts to Try:
Where to Get Pom Poms for Kids Crafts:
The best places I have found for getting craft pom poms for kids is Amazon. Amazon has Thanksgiving & Fall Colored Pom Poms. They have tons of fun pom poms in bulk if you are looking for a lot. I’ve also found pom poms at Walmart in smaller sizes and Oriental Trading Company. Also, look around craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and JoAnns too because they are always loaded with fun craft supplies for kids.
Supplies for this craft:
Orange cardstock paper
Fall colored craft pom poms
green pipe cleaner for stem
How to Make Pom Pom Pumpkins Kids Craft:
Now, that we’ve learned about where to get the craft items, here’s how you make this fun little craft with the kiddos.
- Cut your cardstock into a manageable size for little hands. I used about a quarter of a full sheet. Have you child place glue dots or lines in the shape of a pumpkin in the middle of their cardstock paper.
2. Next, place desired amount of pom poms on the glue to make a pumpkin. Let the glue dry.
3. Shape the pipe cleaner into a stem shape and glue onto the top.
4. If you want, use the scissors to cut around the edges of the pumpkin or simply leave it as it is.
5. And finally, it’s done! Now go make more! So many shapes and sizes to make!
