More Pompom Fun


Materials

  • Pompoms in various sizes and colors
  • Clear plastic drinking cups
  • Permanent marker

Directions

  1. Use a permanent marker to make dots on the front of a clear plastic cup.
  2. One cup should have one dot, another two dots, the next three dots, and so on.
  3. You can mark as many cups as you feel your child is able to match.
  4. Give her an assortment of pompoms and show her how to drop the same number of pompoms as dots into the cup.
  5. If you like, use beans, large nuts, golf tees, large plastic paper clips, small spools of thread, or other small objects in place of pompoms.
  6. Store the cups and objects in a small box or diaper-wipe container when not in use.
