Make your own poi!

I'm sure lots of you have been getting crafty over the past few weeks, so here is another craft idea to add to your list. Some of you will have had a go at making poi with Whaea Hinehau and Whaea Ngarimu last year, but it takes lots of practise to make the perfect poi! Christchurch City Libraries released this activity idea for the school holidays, and it looks like lots of fun. Give it a go, and then with your finished poi, try the poi drill in the video below!
