Pom Pom Push
Practice fine motor skills by taking a plastic container and cut holes in the top (can use any item with holes in it) and let them push the pom poms (or any small item) through the holes. Use cardboard tubes taped to the wall for a vertical challenge. Encourage the children to count the number of pom poms used. Use different sized items with holes in them and/or different sized pom poms.
