pom pom valentines to make and give

Pom Pom Valentine DIY - make these retro pom pom monsters with the kids this Valentine's Day.

Birdie’s school has a no-candy rule when it comes to Valentine’s day, and I love it. Every year we use it as an opportunity to make something a little extra special for all of her friends in her class. This year, we’re combining my printable valentines with some retro-inspired pom pom creatures. They’re like pom pom monsters with a an added dose of aaaaaaw. I upgraded them a bit with gorgeous cotton pompoms and wool felt, I couldn’t help myself! The great news is, Birdie, at 5 years old, is able to do all the assembly by herself.

Take a peek at my favorite, her robot alien butterfly, at the bottom of the post!

What you’ll need:


What you’ll do:

  • Cut out lots of hearts!
  • Gather all your materials, and decide what animal you’d like to make.
  • Experiment with the placement of things before you get out the glue!
  • Tip: we poured out some glue on scrap paper and used toothpicks dipped in the glue to place the small eyes.
