What type of poi is best for you?
There are many different types of poi, from traditional Māori poi to sock poi, glow poi, and fire poi! Below are three types of poi that are a great starting place. They can all be made from materials you’ll find around the house.
Sock poi are an excellent choice all around. They are super easy to make, very durable, and the length and weight can easily be customized.
Corded Sock Poi
Corded sock poi are a nice choice if you want something that is easy to make and extra soft (great for frail older adults or young children).
Māori poi are a fun craft activity and a great way to learn more about Māori culture.
