Harvey liked putting the pompoms in through the holes (posting), but he liked taking off the lid to look inside and then dumping them out even more. He repeated this cycle several times with my help. This will be a good one for me to help work with Harvey on focus and concentration. This activity is also great for fine motor skills.
- Container with a lid
- Pom poms
Cut 4 holes in the top of the lid large enough to post pom poms through. Replace the lid on the container. Show your child how the pom poms go into the container and disappear. They will soon join in the fun with you!
When doing the sticky paper pompom activity as a family, Harvey began to get disruptive, so I quickly ran and grabbed an empty old plastic container from the kitchen and poked some holes in it. He then played another 20 minutes, with some attention from my husband, picking poms up off the floor and putting them through the holes, buying me a little precious extra time and attention for my older kids.
