Last week I cleared out our craft cupboard, it ended up taking quite a long time and I couldn't believe how much was lurking there. I tend to buy things when I see them at a good price, pop them away and forget about them.
One of these things was a bag of pom poms that had been reduced to 25p, popped into the craft cupboard and duly forgotten. Well I found them again and decided to use them in a simple spring activity for Seb.
This tray was about 50p in Asda a few years ago, it's been used for parties and is perfect for sorting activities.
We sorted them into sizes and then into colours, counting the pom poms as we went.
A cheap and easy way to keep a 3 year old amused for 20 minutes while practising fine motor skills and basic maths.
