On Good Friday I received a phone call from my good friend, E. She had an Easter craft and could the kids come over to make it with me? E, J arrived first and the three of us followed E along as she modeled how to make pom poms. Later the boys, M and M arrived. We had a great afternoon, chatting, getting caught up on each other’s lives while we did our craft. By the end of our time together we each had a bunny and a chick to take along with us.
E demonstrates wrapping yarn around a round cardboard template (made from two identical pieces of cardboard)…
Once the template is about three quarters of the way covered in yarn you cut through the edge and tie another length of yarn around it to secure it. Click here for a video demonstration that I found on youtube if you’d like to make your own.
Spending time with friends and family this weekend was the perfect way to celebrate the Easter weekend!
