For this experiment we used a wrapping paper tube, pom poms, and a bucket. We tucked it in the corner of the couch at an angle and experimented with sending pom poms down the tube. At first, B just enjoyed sending them down and seeing them come out on the other end. Then, I put the bucket at the bottom and told him to see if he could get them to fall into the bucket. Fun! I loved seeing him experiment with this and move the bucket around trying to figure it out.
I’m thinking next time I’ll buy one of those large mailing tubes and figure out a way to attach it to the banister. That way we can use balls of different size and texture.
Don’t have any pom poms and don’t want to buy them JUST for this activity? Check out these other Pom Pom Activities.
