I have SOOO much scrap yarn at work! You can imagine all the little leftovers I end up with after the kids are done making the world’s longest chains. I wanted to use up all the little strips and tiny balls in a fun and creative way. The kids love Pea Shooters and the green one I made was a big hit so…
This pink and red Pea Shooter was conceived right before Valentine’s Day. I had a lot, and I mean a lot of red and pink scraps of yarn. The kids really love using those colors. The kids kept questioning the work in progress, I assume not trusting what I was making. They quickly pointed out that there was no red and pink Pea Shooter in the game. I told them to trust me.
When I was almost done with it, they got more and more excited. Some of them asked me what it was. I told them it was a ‘Mrs. Sherman one of a kind limited edition Valentine’s Day special heart Pea Shooter!” They got super excited after that. 🙂
Well, I hadn’t even put the finishing touches on it when I got a gazillion suggestions on other Pea Shooters I could make. One little boy (Kinder) was insistent I make a pumpkin version. Not sure why he was stuck on that idea, but it just so happened I had a small orange crochet ball at home. It was a not-so-successful attempt to make a stress ball (I made a better one after that first one).
So I made this…
I made this one with a hollow center and made a teeny weeny pumpkin for him (or her) to shoot.
They loved it. It’s amazing what you can make with all those little odd pieces of yarn if you try hard enough. 🙂
