Indoor Activity For Kids:

Pom pom grab and drop

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.

This activity is inspired by ideas from Pom pom grab and drop.

This activity is great to teach your kids:

Fine motor skills involve movement of the smaller muscle groups in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists.

Developing fine motor skills will help your child to write and prepares her for school. But it will also help your children with everyday tasks like eating, and dressing themselves.

Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.

I’m convinced that pom pom ball have magical powers. What is it about those little balls of fluff that get our toddlers all spun up? Bringing out a bag of pom pom balls at my house might as well be ringing the dinner bell out on the prairie. The kids come running!
