Gather up your recycled cardboard and pompoms and create this simple sorting and counting activity for your little ones.
Pompoms serve as excellent tools for enhancing fine motor skills in young children. Engaging in simple yet effective activities with pompoms, such as color sorting, transferring, dropping, painting, and counting, provides a fun and educational experience.
In this activity, we embarked on a straightforward yet delightful rainbow color sorting and counting adventure using the vibrant pompoms we acquired from Pandie. This not only promotes skill development but also adds an element of creativity and joy to the learning process.
NOTE: Always supervise your kids when they are handling small toys and objects.
How to create a pompom sorting activity:
- Recycled cardboard
- Paint; red, orange, yellow, green and blue
- Colored papers; red, orange, yellow, green and blue
- Glue gun and stick
- Pompoms; red, orange, yellow, green and blue
- Cotton pads
- Paint a rainbow on the recycled cardboard.
- Cut four small strips from the red paper, bend to form a circle, and glue each onto the red part of the rainbow. Ensure that the pompoms can fit into the circles.
- Repeat this process for the rest of the colors.
- Attach the cotton pads at the end of the rainbow.
How to play:
- Sort the pompoms according to the colors in the rainbow.
