It’s that time of year again, where the parents both love and loathe life. It’s back to school, ya’ll.
Because it’s bittersweet to see the kids grow, and you hate to send them off after summer. But then you think about the costs you’ll save on the babysitter, or the extra time you might get, or how you’ll stop getting a bazillion phone calls at work. But then you think about having to get back on schedule, and bedtime, and morning-time, and homework, all.the.homework. Then you just want to kick yourself. Why did we have kids again?
No matter if you love it, or hate it, you got to support it. Education.
What better way to do that than Box Tops for Education?! Box Tops have been around since 1996, providing a great way to help better our schools by donating funds per products purchased, and have since given schools over $719 million dollars. Woah.
DIY Mini Pom Pom Garland with Kleenex
You can actually use both Kleenex tissues and Scott toilet paper to make this DIY Mini Pom Pom Garland. If you do use both, be sure to save those box tops to send over to your school!
I’ve broken it down into step by step instructions, of course I was silly and did it against a white background, so excuse my silly dark photos that don’t nearly match up.
- Take a tissue
- Cut into thirds
- Fray each side
- Fold in half
- Roll up
- Secure with yarn
This is a fun back to school activity for school age children with school supplies. You can even change it up a bit if you’d like. If you want smaller poms, you can use a piece of Scott Toilet Paper. Or larger poms use half, or a whole, tissue with longer ‘frays’. You can even take a marker and gently swipe down the ends of the tissue before you fray it, this will give your garland a little splash of color. Don’t forget that you can purchase Viva Paper Towels and complete this DIY Mini Pom Pom Garland.
