POM POM LETTERS

I love POM POMS. I use them a lot in my classroom in several ways: to sort, for art, for language arts (cover beginning sounds), for sensory activities. But for this art activity, we're using them to make a letter for a nursery or a kid's room. Since I'm making this for my daughter, Maile, I chose the letter M and chose a rainbow design since she likes unicorns and colorful things. Here's what we did:

MATERIALS: cardboard letter from Michael's // pom poms from Amazon // hot glue gun from Lakeshore

STEPS: After heating up the glue gun, dallop a small amount of glue in the corner of the letter. Quickly plop a pom pom on top of the glue. Repeat. TIP: Do NOT put too much glue because hot glue dries quickly. Just put .5 inch of glue.

Continue until the entire letter is covered with pom poms! It's an easy project that lasts about an hour. If you're like me and enjoy tedious yet don't-have-to-use-my-brain activities, then this one is for you! Plus, the results are stunning!
