Sorting pompoms

This is an extremely easy activity to carry out with your tot and my little gal just kept doing it over and over again! 😛 After awhile, she got so engaged in the activity, she didn’t even notice I went to the kitchen to cook our lunch! haha….

Here’s what you need:

  • a set of colourful pompoms
  • a container to hold the pompoms
  • several small containers for the sorting (I used those little disposable ‘plates’ we place our sauces in for this activity)
Almost done with sorting…

After I bought the first batch of pompoms, I kinda fell in love with them and when I saw a very pretty set at Daiso, I just had to buy it… 😛

These aren’t so suitable for tonging though due to their design; works well for a sorting sensory game since they are well, furry/ prickly. The red ones (can’t be seen in the photo) in particular look like mini rambutans… hee. Tell me you love these too! 😛

    I’ve been wanting so much to buy the pompoms each time I visit Daiso, and I have to keep reminding myself that my baby is just too small now to be playing with them (she’ll just stuff all of them into her mouth) and it doesn’t make sense to keep all these things cluttered up somewhere only to be forgotten later… but I kept remembering I’ll buy them! Because I found so many activities that I can do with them =) here’s something to share, although you’d have probably know about them already, looking at the array of activities you’ve been engaging your little one with! 😀
