Posted:I have been working with kids to make short poi out of loooooong tube socks, then I show them how to use them. I use my Buzz poi, and bring along my comets. When we are done I let them have freespin with my comets....

Picture it...10 sets of comet poi, 20 kids between the ages of 4 and 11.....
ah the joy, the violence, the tangles...

It was funny. I highly recommend viewing this from a good distance sometime!

(and Malcolm, I will be putting in an order for more comets...just warning you! )

Posted:Nicely done Pele!

Developing hand and eye co-ordination, patience, rythme all through great fun is the sign of a good teacher. Fair play to you.

Pyrophile..the hand-eye co-ordination was all them, the patience was all me!

I can't say I'd ever do it again but it was really funny!
I am also finding most schools are really thrilled to have you come in and do this as a cultural thing, so give it a try....

This shop? On this here site? I know I'm dense and slow and all that, but I can't find them . Are they the fuzzy poi or do you have to ask for them special order like?
