This is an absolute fave. It was funny watching Harvey the first time, because he didn’t see the paper and was trying to put the poms on the wall next to it. It’s a good challenge and excellent for cognitive skills to understand where the sticky part begins, or why the poms stick certain places and not others.
He was amazed at how they stuck when he did find the paper, and wanted me to do it too, and he liked to see how the paper felt with his hands, other body parts and clothes. He also just enjoyed dumping the pom poms out of the basket and putting them back, and sweeping them off the sticky paper when he was done.
