Pea Shooters Galore – Scrap Busting

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think I ended up using five different reds and a two different pinks.ย 

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…

They called this one a baby Pea Shooter because it was small.

I made this one with a hollow center and made a teeny weeny pumpkin for him (or her) to shoot.
