If you're looking for wintry craft inspiration to do with little ones over the next couple of weeks, here's a cute little pom pom winter bird to keep everyone happy and engaged.
Make two different size pom poms, for the body and head.
Trim around each pom pom with the scissors to make neat balls, making sure to leave plenty excess on the central thread that binds the pom pom together.
Use this long thread to tie both pom poms together, so that the smaller pom pom becomes the bird's head. Once joined trim off the excess thread.
Cut a triangular piece of grey felt for the beak and stick to the pom poms with the craft glue.
Cut two small circles from the black felt and stick on for the eyes.
Cut three-toe pieces of felt for the feet and attach with glue.
My daughter Molly made a warm winter scarf for the bird with her small French Knitter, but a long piece of felt or ribbon will work just as well.
