PomPoms provide hours of fun and will teach your child fundamental skills in classifying and sorting.
Early years development is the most crucial phase of our growth as humans! As parents, it can be the most fun and rewarding time of our parenthood – as our little legends’ brains expand and their imagination runs wild. Finding activities to both stimulate the brain, and your child’s imagination, takes a lot of thought and preparation. Introducing concepts of Maths and Literacy through play is important, and fine-motor skills are essential for practical life. PomPom balls are a great tool to achieve all the above!
Before they learn about numbers, the little ones need to figure out what they are counting – and how to differentiate between similar things.
Thankfully, with a set of colourful PomPoms, together with some pincers, and cups, you have yourself an all-round, amazing activity for kids.
The different shades of colour will immediately capture your child’s curiosity, and the soft fabric will feel good on their little fingers. Next – it’s time to classify and sort. If the PomPoms are in different sizes, even better! You will have an abundance of possibilities as your child learns to sort and organize, whilst having heaps of fun.
Activity tip: Get a set of PomPoms, paper containers, and a pair of wooden pincers, and begin by placing different colours in different containers. Show your child how to use the pincers, and delight in their adorable attempts to pick up the PomPoms. Once your child can classify basic colours, move on to different shades of colour (light and dark) and then sorting the different sizes.
