Pom Pom Activities

I saw a bag of pom poms at the dollar store today and wondered what Pom Pom Activities we could do with them? All I could think of is putting squiggly eyes on them, which is fun but then I pictured all of those laying all over my house.

Pom Pom Activities

So here are 3 Pom Pom Activities that you and your toddler will love:
* Sort the pom poms by color (If you are just starting with colors, use construction paper that matches the pom poms and have your child put the pom poms on the matching paper.)
* Using the same color pom poms have your child sort them by size (in small, medium, and large piles or line them up in a row from smallest to largest).
* Work on counting by drawing numbers or dots on the front of a cup and have your child drop the corresponding number of pom poms in each cup.

    One idea we had here was using tongs to place one pom pom in each section of an egg tray. But Esme decided to just use her hands, and she actually quite enjoyed the simple task…

    We use tongs to put pom poms into an ice cube tray. We also use them for collages and crafts.

    We toss them around the living room, and then go around with our baskets on our arms “picking blueberries” together. We’ve also glued a row of them together and then added googly eyes to make a caterpillar. Just found your blog, by the way–it’s great!

    Use the red ones as apples for counting apples in an apple tree drawing.

    We like to use the big ones for a game. I drop them from the step stool as Bear walks beneath with an empty icecream bucket and tries to catch them.

    We use them in the play kitchen for soups and other food too.

    I am waaaay late on this one, but I just found your blog and adore it! For little ones you can cut a hole into the top of a disposable container (we used a ziploc one, but you could use a sour cream container)and have them place them inside. For add difficulty, just cut an X. I have also glued them to the end of popsicle sticks for a color sorting activity.
