I have seen on various sites through out the blog-sphere this fine motor skills activity that involves putting small poms into a container. I was itching to try it but didn’t have any poms handy. Until today! The hubs was off so we went to the craft store with the kids. (I’m sure he looooved spending his day off looking at felt and fabric with me.. gotta love marriage!) I found the poms and they were half off at $1.50 for the large bag. (Score!) Right before I started cooking dinner I cut out a little hole in one of Ryley’s empty snack containers and showed her how to place the poms inside.
She really like pushing them in the container.
Heres the little hole I cut out.
I love sweet baby hands.
This entertained her for almost half an hour, and she only tried to eat them once! Woohoo! 🙂 They eventually ended up all over the floor, but it was well worth the $1.50 plus we will be play with them again.
What fun activity did you teach your little one today? (Or any day!) I’d love for you to share!
