That was great ladies!!! You gave a really clear description. I didn't know that a poi was originally a weapon !!! I'm going to be more careful around our kapa haka group at Tamaki College from now on !!! :)

Well done, Mereana, Sidena and Charlie May,

Your instructions were very detailed and clear. I must have a go at making poi's with my class. They seem fun to make.
Keep up the great work,

What a great idea for a video blog. You certainly made it look really easy to make a poi. I think the tricky bit will be using them gracefully. I look forward to your next video with further instructions.
