I have to confess that I am a bit of a ?back to basics? kind of girl.. and generally shun any sorts of gadgetry.. especially ?when it isn?t necessary?.. however, when it comes to the Clover Pom Pom Maker, it is an entirely different story. I showed my kids how to make pom poms just using card (both rectangluar and round) and how to make pom poms using a fork and your fingers. They did it? but only *just*. Then I gave them the clover pom pom maker? and hey presto.. suddenly we were in a mad pom pom making frenzy! They couldn?t get enough of it. Since we introduce the pom pom making devices to our house, we have made pom pom birds, pom pom hedgehogs and pom pom fairies. We have even made some pom pom apples and pom pom hearts as well as some cheerful pom pom zipper pulls.. yep.. if you can make it out of a pom pom, we have made it!
