Fine motor development activity with pom pom and clothespin

Pom poms are really fun to play with. Just by touching the colourful pom pom gives sensory stimulation for little ones . For grown up toddlers, picking up pom pom and putting it in necessary place will be great activity to keep them engaged.

Things needed:

  • Egg carton
  • Pom pom
  • Clothes pin

Pressing the clothespin requires greater use of hand force which enhances the motor abilities of kids . Picking up pom pom and dropping in specified hole of egg carton involves fine motor skills. This is great activity to improve both. Variation of this is to pick and drop the pom pom in container, separate it by colours.
