DIY Toddler's Activities: Pom Pom Drop yet again!

I've previously introduced DIY Toddler's activities using Pom Pom and how I love using pom poms for Sticky Bean's activities as well as how versatile it is.
So here I am sharing yet another pom pom drop activity which is simple to make and uses recycled materials too.

Materials:
1) poms poms
2) any recycled plastic tub with lid, in my case i used a huge yoghurt tub. The plastic tubs from ice cream containers will work well too

So I cut a few holes on the lid so Sticky Bean and push the poms poms through the holes. I cut them in different sizes so she can learn about sizes, cause and effects. Example, for the smaller holes, she will have to push the poms poms and exert strength for the pom poms to drop into the container.
Hope this will help hone her fine motor skills further.

Alright it's a challenge cutting holes in those lid with a pair of scissors so my holes ain't exactly round.
If you're worried about the sharp corners from the jagged edges, you can use a lighter to melt the edges slightly.

Here's sticky bean having fun with her pom pom drop. I've introduced this activity 3 months ago 3 months later, it still keeps her entertained.




Age attempted: Introduced at 18mths, now at 21mths, she's still interested in this.
Duration entertained: 15 - 20 mins
Will I try this again? YES!
