First, children make two pompoms out of white yarn or wool. To do that, prepare two cardboard circles with a hole in the middle for each child (the diameter of the circles in this case is about 4 cm, and the holes 1.5 cm). Children wrap strands of yarn on cardboard circles – remember that to make each pom-pom you need two identical circles. However, nothing stands in the way of reusing the circles cut out of cardboard. The direction of winding: through the hole to the outside of the circle and again to the hole, etc. When the yarn is already wound across the entire width of the circle, and the child finds it difficult to put consecutive strips of yarn through the hole in the circle, carefully move the yarn away from the hole in one place, so that you can insert the scissors between two circles and cut strips of yarn around the circumference of the circle. To prevent the pompom tassels from falling apart, hold the center of the circle the entire time. After cutting the strands of yarn, pull one strand of yarn between the circles and tie all the tassels tightly. The last step in making the pompoms is to pull them out of the cardboard forms. Once you have two pompoms ready, just glue them together. Make the snowman’s hat from an egg stamping, the nose from colored paper, and the scarf from felt.
