Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    I printed "Daddy" onto a piece of white cardstock. You could also hand-write it. Any kind of paper works, but I love card stock for durability. Make the printing or writing very large so that if your child places pom poms over the letters you can still read the word.

  • Step 2

    I poured the glue into a little dish to make dipping the pom poms easier.

  • Step 5

    When he decided he was done, we left the paper to dry. He spent a few more minutes exploring with the glue and some remaining pom poms, making a sort of pom pom and glue soup.

  • Done!

    I trimmed the paper a bit and added "I love you", the year, and a signature with a sharpie. You can also mount this on some pretty scrapbooking paper or attach a magnet to the back.
