Today we sorted a bag of colored poms that I picked up at the Dollar Store. M loved this activity, and when she was done sorting, she practiced counting as she removed all the poms.
Muffin Tin Pom Sorting
Theme: Preschool Skills
Materials: Muffin tin, colored poms, small bowl or tupperware
How to: Put one pom, each a different color, in the muffin tin compartments. Place the rest of the poms in your small container to the side. The child then starts sorting the poms, matching the colors to the original pom that you placed in the compartments. You can use tongs or kids chopsticks if you also want to work on fine motor skills.
