Tot Thursday: Angry Birds Pom Pom

I'm always looking for fun boy crafts, and it seems like Angry Birds are all over the place. When I saw this idea, I thought that my boys would love to make them.

This is how I made it:
1) I took 10 yards of yarn and wrap it around a semi circle. I have a little plastic one but I've seen people make them out of cardboard. Altogether, I used 20 yards of yarn
2) I put the circle together and then cut the yarn around the edge of the circle.
3) With another piece of yarn, I tied a knot around the middle of the yarn. I did this a couple times to make sure the pom pom won't fall apart.
Here's the pom pom
4) I decorated it to make the angry bird
Then I made several others.
I made enough so everyone could take one home.

For the party, we used a sling shot and shot a pyramid of paper cups.
