I loved making pom-poms when I was young, I remember making one on a cold winter's night to adorn a woolly hat turning it into a bobble hat. We also made them at school, joining them together to make funny caterpillars. This is definitely a project that the young and old alike can share and have fun. It's also a great way to use up any oddments of wool you have. For added safety adults may want to help younger children with the cutting out of cardboard templates.
