This activity is simple but it can keep kids busy for a while. My kids love posting so this activity is great for kids who like posting. If you don’t have a bottle or to mix it up, they can also post into egg cartons with slids cut in.
I like simple to setup activities like this pom pom activity and my kids love transferring items from one container to another. It works on their fine motor skills and concentration. All you need are pom poms, tongs and a container to add the pom poms to.
I can see kids sit in wonder as they spy the different buttons through the rice or sand in the bottle, keeping them busy for a decent amount of time. You can color the rice if you like or use colored kinetic sand for the filler.
