  1. Cut a piece of scrap cardboard into a square that is 3"x 3" (if you want larger pom poms make it 4"x4")
  2. Start with the end of the yarn and wrap around the cardboard 100 times. If you kids can't count to 100, have them count to 10, 10 times.  When you get to the end cut the yarn. 
  3. For the next step you will need the help of the an adult. Take a scissor and cut the yarn along the top edge and bottom edge keep all the pieces together. It will no longer be a loop.
  4. Cut a piece of yarn that is 5" long and tie it tightly in the center. Fluff out the pom pom and trim to make it a round pom pom.

Bubbly Witches Cauldron Kids Craft with Crayola


  1. Draw a cauldron with a pencil on black construction paper. You can also download, print, cut and trace my cauldron template. 
  2. Cut a slit in the top rim of the cauldron. You can fold the cauldron in half to start the slit from the center and then cut out. Don't cut all the way to the end. 
  3. Place the cauldron on the green sheet of paper and draw bubbles that are bubbling out the top and cut out. 
  4. Cut circles in different sizes out of light green and black paper. Glue these to the green bubbles from step 2. 
  5. Glue the bubbles to the back edge of the rim. Don't glue the slit closed. 
  6. Write a fun message on the cauldron with the Gel Markers. These work like magic on black construction paper. 
  7. Accent the bubbles and cauldron with glitter glue and let dry.
  8. Color the popsicle with a brown marker. 
  9. Cut the broom bristles out of orange construction paper and glue to the end of the stick .
