Pom Poms are a fun toy for kids to play with during picnics and to shake at parades, and a good outlet for the creative painter in any child. This is a 4th of July kids' craft that kids enjoy making and the sky is the limit!

Patriotic Pom Poms Craft

How to make it

  1. Flatten coffee filters on a paper plate, one at a time.
  2. Use water paint to paint striped, dots, or patterns on the coffee filters in red and blue, leaving white areas.
  3. Let each of these dry on a paper towel as you do the next. These should take 20 minutes to dry completely. Once each filter is dried, begin cutting strips towards the middle, but do not cut to the center.
  4. Once you have gone around each filter and made strips, take two at a time and poke a pipe cleaner through the two and follow it with a Dum Dum Pop. Leave an inch at the top to wrap around the base of the lollipop.
  5. Turn over the filters and wrap the rest of the pipe cleaner down the stick to create a handle for your firework pom pom.
  6. Continue with the other coffee filters to create the desired number of patriotic pom poms you and the kids will need.
