Cut circles from black felt and glue to the pink pom-poms. Fold the plate in half but do not crease. Glue pom-pom eyes to the top of the blue side of the paper plate. Cut a small hole in the center of the plate and insert the party blower. Parents can secure the blower with a small amount of hot glue, however tape can also be used.
