Indoor Activity For Kids:
Pom pom color sort
In this activity your kids will use pom poms and a serving tray (or muffin tin) to sort the pom poms by color.
They will add all the red to one space of the serving tray and repeat it for each color, filling all spaces of the serving tray until the pom poms are sorted.
This activity uses only a few basic supplies and if you buy pom poms and a serving tray, you can repeat this activity as often as you like.
Kids can sort the pom poms by color and size and explore the textures of the pom poms in this quiet time activity.
This activity is inspired by ideas from Pom pom color sort.
