Rainbow Pom Pom Transfer
Today, however, the kids knew what was coming. We've been patiently waiting for a bunch of homeschool supplies that I ordered and today they finally arrived. The package, after the kids tore right in, looked like this:
There really is nothing like a small dose of reality to take the wind from your sails, hum?
Not to be deterred, I devised this simple game based on the thousand Pinterest pom pom transfer posts I've seen lately (and by 1+1+1's post about her rainbow week which appeared in my email today).
Colored pom poms to match the
mini silicone baking cups
optional basket to store the goods.
The activity is simple: put the pom poms in a basket and ask the child to use tweezers to move the pom poms from the basket to the corresponding colored muffin cup. Ask the child to say the name of the color out loud to you. Since our set has a dark and a light blue cup we had a good discussion about light versus dark colors.
