6 Awesome Pom Pom Crafts for Kids


Pom pom crafts for kids are my absolute favorite. It’s so easy the do and the kids love it. The great thing is that pom pom activities can also double as sensory activities for younger kids, and then you can more detail and creativity for older kids.

I love to find creative ways for my children to both learn AND have fun. Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers have such an innocent curiosity to learn anything they possibly, and they really do learn from anything, not just sitting in a classroom.

So it honestly doesn’t take much at all for us parents, grandparents, and caregivers to be creative and teach our children during our day to day activities.

The Best Pom Pom Crafts!

Get Your Supplies

This is probably one of my favorites parts of this activity. I LOVE shopping and I LOVE finding value for cheap prices even more! Everything you need can be found with one trip to the dollar store and shouldn’t cost any more than 2-3 dollars! Here is a list of the items you will need if you don’t already have them at home.

  1. A bag of Pom Poms (if you plan to do a lot of crafts you can get larger bags here)
  2. Index cards or any strong paper
  3. Glue
  4. Scissors

Draw and Cut out Your Child’s Name

After drawing out the letters onto the index cards, just  cut them out! I shortened my son’s name to his nickname and I only did the first letter of my 18 month old’s name.

Apply Glue and Let the Fun Begin!

This part of the activity is very simple and fun for your child! The trick is to apply a line of glue section by section and allow your toddler to apply the pom poms as you go. If you do it this way, the glue will not dry out and there is also less chance of a glue disaster 🙂

As for colors and design, whatever you are feeling that day, just go with it ? I will say that one of my most important tips for any activity involving toddlers is to try your best to have things already set up before you present activities to you tots, if possible. Prevention is Key! Having the letters already drawn out was a life saver for me because my son is not into waiting lol.

    Hello, what an active website. I love the way that you included how to start your own blog. It looks very professional and I will be referring your Website to my Children to help encourage my grandchildren to be active. I also like your shop page and the whole layout of your website. It is very easy to access all of the information you have provided and all of your links work. You have a logo, and it is easy to read. Great Job. I also left a comment on your site. If they only had this when my children where young. Thank you for sharing.

    • Kayla

      Thank you for that feedback! I appreciate it and I’m really glad you enjoyed the site! And yes please share! I hope your children and grandchildren enjoy it as well.

  • Heidi

    These crafts are just adorable! My youngest daughter would love the Galaxy Butterfly and my oldest would love decorating a notebook cover with the pom poms. I will have to remember these for an art activity this year.

    Your site is wonderful! I wish I would have had more of these ideas around when girls were younger. I will have to share this with other homeschool families.

    • Kayla

      Thank you Heidi!I hope the are able to enjoy some of them 🙂

      And thank you! Please do share that would be awesome. I will have to do the same with your awesome site.

  • Stephanie Caden

    What a fantastic idea, I’m not super crafty and even I can manage this one! My four year old would be all over this and I can use it to continue helping her to learn how to spell her name. Thanks for your amazing craftiness.

  • Cathy

    This is such a fun idea. I am planning to make some craft projects with my students next weekend and never thought of using pom poms as stationary decoration. I am actually searching for a single color pom poms, but can’t seem to find it on Amazon.

    Do you know any retailer that may sell them? Thanks.

    • Kayla

      Hi Cathy!

      From Amazon, you can get them in single colors here with 500 per pack.

      Or you can get them in single colors here with 100 per pack.

      Also, if you search Darice pom poms in Amazon you will see more options 🙂

    My kids are slightly too old for this now but would have loved the idea. In fact I know by experience that this would be good therapy for angry kids. I have a 10 year old that goes to anger management and they get him to play with soldiers in a sandpit. I wonder if making pom pom crafts would also be a calming mechanism? I have a feeling it would.
