Supplies needed to make a Pom Pom Flower Magnet

Here are the supplies you will need to make this pom pom craft:

Directions to make Pom Pom Flower Magnets

1. Begin by tracing a flower shape onto a thin piece of cardboard. We used an old cereal box for this and it worked great. Trace around a lid to make a circle shape and then trace around a smaller lid for the petals.

2. Cut out a smaller circle shape out of the center of the cardboard flower. Adults may need to help with this part. You can slightly bend the cardboard to cut inside and then cut around the circle.

3. Glue pom poms onto the cardboard until all of the empty spaces are filled.
