Make a Pom-Pom Wall

This activity can be done anywhere there is a wall! Watch your pom-poms fall through the course you create.


  • Paper towel tubes
  • Cardstock/paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape (we recommend painter’s tape to keep painted walls intact!)
  • Pom-poms


  1. Start by taking some of your paper/cardstock and cut in half to make smaller sections. Gather your paper towel tubes as well.
  2. Tape the pieces of paper onto the wall in the shape of a tunnel. It is now also the time to incorporate the paper towel tubes on the wall as well!  Make sure you are spreading them out and creating a course that pom-poms can follow!
  3. Once all of your pieces of paper and tubes are taped on the wall in a course design, time to test it out! Take some pom-poms and start at the top. Have some fun!

Need inspiration?


  • Have bouncy balls or ping pong balls? Test those out instead of pom-poms!
  • You can always un-tape the course and create a new design!
