One thing we can’t get enough of in this house is poms! We have quickly grown our collection over the past few holidays, and Remi loves playing with them. One of the first learning activities we did was a simple pom sort in a muffin tin and he still asks to do that to this day!
While gathering my St. Patty’s Day supplies, I grabbed a big bag of poms from the seasonal department from Joann Crafts. On sale the bag cost me under $5 for a pack of 300! I knew we would get good use of them!
To mix up our usual color sorting, this activity requires your kiddo to sort the poms based on size.
- Poms, both big and small. (I sorted obvious small and big poms, and left out any sizes in between, but you can do any combination that works for you!)
- Something to sort the poms on (This can be as simple as two bowls, labeled paper, etc. I cut two shamrocks out with my Cricut to be festive, but is not necessary! Just make sure it is easy to identify where each size pom goes)
- Tongs or a spoon (If you want an additional challenge)
Mix up all the poms and lay out your sorting papers. Have your little sort through the poms. For an additional challenge, you can have your babe use tongs, chop sticks, or even a spoon to sort them!
Activities like this sometimes seem so simple to us, but the skills your kiddo is working on, and the excitement they have when completing the task is bigger than we realize!
I hope this is an activity that your little will ask to do again! Let me know below how it went for you or any changes you made!
