Balance the Pom Poms : Using the craft sticks let the child create patterns, shapes anything the child feels like, Chintu decided on shapes. Using a tong, let the child balance the Pom Poms on the outline. A simple yet a lovely activity for fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
Fill in the Pom Poms : This is something Chintu came up with. He is more into shapes, and the first one he makes is a triangle. An activity with craft sticks, Pom Poms and tong was on the shelf. He simply took this to the table, made a triangle and filled it with Pom Poms.
These two activities help the child in understanding the shapes in a better way. For us these two activities turned up to be activities for learning/working on shapes.
