I made two scrunchies out of that school dress that had permanent felt pen on. (I cut peasant dress sleeves out of it last week!)to show her what they are. Such a satisfying thing to make rather than buy.
Then we gave the donut a try.
You make a low ponytail with a secure band. Slip over the donut- shaped-net-thingy. Then with your fingers poke around in the centre of the pony and spread the hair over the donut and quickly slip on the scrunchie.
I know it sounds like a whole new language but if you have girls give it a go...
I'm off to make scrunchies in all colours, see ya. Jo xx
