Pom Pom Caterpillar

Little ones are going to have a blast helping you make this sweet Pom Pom Caterpillar. Learning how to make your own toy has never been so fun. Just making the pom poms is a fun project, but combining them to create this soft and squishy caterpillar is super fun. While the youngest might not be able to do this project on their own, they will be able to help choose colors and learn how to make pom poms. This sweet pom pom fellow is going to become a new favorite toy.
