My toddler loves and adores all little things.
Especially those tiny little things that are on the do-not-give-to-little-kids-who-mouth-everything-that-comes-their-way lists. I guess it’s a casualty of being the second child to a 3.5 year old sibling, but I suppose the good news is that she’s building an understanding of what can and can’t go in the mouth.
To play to our strengths, I set up this invitation to play: pom-poms, bowl, yogurt container, and a mini ladle.
- Tub full of various pom-poms
- Small bowl
- Mini ladle
- Large yogurt container with a hole cut in its top
Lay it all out and see what your child comes up with.
Not at all what I expected, but I’m digging it.
And of course there was lots of scooping, filling containers, spilling, and dumping.
This is great sensory activity for building fine motor skills and developing color, size, and volume understandings.
