DIY Toddlers Activities: Pom Pom Drop

I've been searching for simple DIY toddlers activities to keep Sticky Bean busy whilst mama prepares dinner each evening and this was among the first activity introduced together with the sensory bottles (which she's outgrown sensory bottles @ 16mths)

This simple DIY toddler activity helps with fine motor skills and kept Sticky Bean entertained for a long time.

At 18mths, toddlers love to put items into a bottle or container and love taking them out. This repetitive action can keep them going for quite a while.

All you need is a recycled plastic bottle and poms poms!
When she kind of got bored of the bottle some 2 weeks later, I modified the same play with an old yoghurt tub, cut holes on the lid and voila!  It became a same same but yet so different activity altogether.

- poms poms
- recycled bottles or containers

  2. Hi JSbuTa
    Thank you for visiting and leaving a note again. I'm so glad you enjoyed reading the posts though I've been slacking with the posts lately.
    I've bought my poms poms from Taobao but yes you are right, POPULAR sells them as well. They are in the crafts section.
