Sports Day Pom-poms – Craft Ideas

Cheer on your friends with this easy to follow Sports Day Pom-poms craft idea. To create Sports Day Pom-poms you need the following:-


  1. Rub a glue stick all over a cardboard tube and cover it with red tissue paper.
  2. Cut a quarter sheet of blue tissue paper. Make it into a fringe by cutting strips into it, leaving 2cm at the top uncut. Wrap the uncut edge around itself and tape it in place. Do the same with a quarter sheet of white tissue, and a quarter sheet of red. The children could use their school or club’s colours instead.
  3. Keep adding more sheets of tissue until the taped part fits neatly inside the cardboard tube. Finally, glue it into place inside the tube.
