A Couple of Rah-Rahs

My kids were recently spectators at a low-key tournament. To help them play the part, we made pom-poms. They were fast and easy--but did leave a few more scraps about the house than I'd prefer.

I removed the staples from a couple of toy catalogs and then the kids slid the whole pages, lengthwise, through the paper shredder. I laid the shreds out as careful as fresh linguini. When there were enough, I grabbed them in the center and wrapped a rubber band tightly around the newly formed handle. For dramatic effect (and for fun), the kids scrunched up the pom-pom wisps.

Go Team!
