When we got a shipment from @chasingpapernyc in the mail last week I knew immediately that I wanted to use the sturdy tube to create a pom-pom drop. Bonus: it was already shaped like a cat!
To make this craft simply use any thick mailing tube (mine is about 2.5 ft long), spray paint entire tube if desired, paint a face on the front and add ears as needed, drill holes into the body (with a little arch escape route at the bottom), secure tube with duct tape in an upright position (inside a box or plastic bin is fine), and pom poms. Kids quickly figure out what to do. Ideal for one to three-year-olds.
