Spring Pom Pom Tree

As part of the Kid Craft Challenge held by Kim over at The Resourceful Mama, I had to come up with a pom pom craft this month.  I decided to do a spring tree with my daughter and am thrilled with how it turned out.

Spring Pom Pom Tree - It's Spring time, why not make a wonderful nature craft with your kids, try this Spring Pom Pom Tree craft to bring a touch of Spring inside.

Materials Needed:

  • Twigs collected from outside
  • A pretty string, ribbon or thread to tie the sticks
  • Pom poms in various Spring colours
  • Glue Gun
  • Decorative butterfly’s

Pom pom




Instructions:

  • Grab a pretty ribbon to tie around the base of the sticks (a few inches from the base) tightly and around and around to try and anchor them together.
  • Use the glue gun to attach the pom poms to the tree.
  • Once again, use the glue gun to attach the butterfly decorations, I liked to put them on the pom poms as it almost looked like flowers and they were landing on it.
  • I put them in a vase and filled the vase with the remaining pom poms to help stabilize it in the vase.

Finished Product

My three-year-old, Bee, loved helping with this.  She had seen me use a glue gun before and desperately wanted to use it so I used this as a great opportunity to teach her about glue gun safety and hot/burning.  I put the glue on the tree branch and she attached the pom pom on top, being careful not to touch, or I put it directly on the pom pom and squeezed it onto the branch.  Bee even helped me squeeze the trigger and put the glue on the pom pom or butterfly, it was a lot of fun and she had a great time picking out the coloured pom poms for me to put on or which one she wanted to put on next.

    This looks so pretty and I am sure your daughter had so much fun helping you make it. Clara just turned 3 and loves joining in on all craft projects. I will have to see if I can find a branch we can use to make something like this.

    Oh my goodness! I have to do this with my kids! You know how some kids have pockets full of stuff when they come in at night. Not mine, they come in with sticks and twigs. For a long time, my daughter had a huge stick just standing in the corner of her room. They usually get mad when I try to get rid of them. This would be a great use for their ever growing collection.
