After much umming and arring about what to do yesterday, the critters decided they'd make some pom poms. They'd seen them around lately and reckon they look pretty awesome.
They found some yarn hidden away in a drawer and attempted to start their pom pom project. It was then they realised none of them actually knew how to make a pom pom. As luck would have it, Clifford the Giraffe had heard of a pom pom expert one of his friends had consulted when she found herself in almost exactly this situation. Clifford did some investigation and found the name and number for the pom pom expert - Patrick the Yak! They gave him a call and realising the severity of the situation, Patrick arrived promptly five minutes later.
First and foremost, Patrick collected everything they'd need for the pom pom project. The critters started questioning Patricks expertise when he insisted a cereal box was essential for pom pom making.
The critters soon realised the importance for the cereal box and had a new found respect for the pom pom expert.
He showed them how to wind the yard around the cereal box cut outs and everything started to come together.
They wound and wound and wound and wound, until they were all dizzy.
Then they cut and tied and pulled and knotted, now they could see the pom pom really taking shape.
Then Voilà! They were the proud new owners of some very stylish pom poms.
They were so excited about their first pom poms they continued to make many more.
