We made this snowing branch mobile on our craft day. Looking through my list of crafts from last February, I saw that we had made our own pom poms for making pom pom flowers. It was a fun and simple activity.
To make the pom poms, we wrapped a long length of yarn around two fingers, being careful not to wrap tightly. (A younger child may find it easier to wrap the fingers of the adult.) We then carefully slide the yarn off and used a length of yarn to tie the middle of the yarn loops.
(More photos on the process can be found on the pom pom flower post)
The mobile reflects the snow we seeing falling outside, helping to bring a reflection and attention to nature and an appreciation for simple beauty.
