Let's Make Pom Pom Hockey Sticks


  • Pompoms (or small pieces of scrunched up paper)
  • Masking tape
  • Paper plates
  • Cardboard tubes

How to

To make the scoops we just cut the paper plate with 3 straight edges and stuck it onto the end of the cardboard tube with masking tape.  We also made square shape boxes on the floor with the masking tape as the goals for the pompoms.

Let’s Play

Using your new stick, move as many pompoms into your square as possible! Only the scoop can be used to move the pompoms around the floor and into the squares.

Change it Up/Adaptations/Additional Options

  • Sort the pompoms in to different colours in different squares
  • Place a number card into each square match the number of pompoms to the square.
