Paint containers with colored tops ( Here is the newer version of the ones I bought )
pompoms various colors and sizes
This activity is super simple but it can keep kids captivated for some time.
It works there knowledge base for color recognition, matching, and differentiation.
I literally just set the cups on the tray and then dumped a bag of pompoms on the tray that’s it super easy.
My son sat here for a while looking at the pompoms deciding which pompoms go in which container
Using their fingers to pick up and grasp the pompom and then to push it through the opening in the container is using their fine motor control and their pincer grasp.
