Pom Poms (British) in Tanzania

These are not your all-American, cheerleader-toted, rah-rah pom poms my friends at home may be thinking of. No, in the UK, as I’ve learned since traveling to Africa, “pom poms” are puff balls of yarn or “wool” for the UK readers. But the kids, not knowing a large plastic scrunch ball from a small raggedy creation, could have cared less. The process of making something from scratch comes second nature to them. And the fact that at the end they get a colorful toy? They loved it!
