Brilliant Preschool Sensory Activities: Frozen Pom Poms

 

One reason why I love social media is because I get to be inspired by so many great ideas everyday regarding preschool sensory activities 🙂 And my children benefit from it! I was super excited to try this easy activity and the kids really enjoyed it, over and over again. It was low prep and low on the mess meter, which is always a great thing.  I know it’s technically Fall, but it is still hot where I am! This a great kid’s project for the heat, great for learning colors, and just having some sensory fun. Enjoy! Thanks @learningwithlottie for a great idea!

 

 

Preschool Sensory Activities: Frozen Pom Poms

 

Pom Pom Sensory Prep

Get some Pom Poms from the store. Put them in trays of your choice. Add water. Freeze. That’s it! 🙂

Pom Pom Play

It’s nice to allow your frozen pom poms to melt outside, but when this is not an option, I just throw down a blanket in their play area and let them have at it.

My preschool aged son practices counting with the frozen cubes while my 18month old toddler is doing sensory play and reciting colors with the same cubes.

    Hi Kayla,

    This is great!

    Did the pompoms dry out and would you use the same ones again?

    I wondered about other things that could go into ice cubes – googly eyes etc.  But then I started to wonder about the health and safety aspects.

    Did your children put the ice cubes in their mouths? Was there a danger of swallowing the pompoms?

    What precautions did you take to make sure this didn’t happen?

      Hi Julia!

      The pom poms do dry out and I use them over and over again. My kids are past the age of putting everything in their mouth (thank goodness) but giving them something to play with the cubes probably makes it easier. I have plans to put all types of things in these ice cubes! lol.

    These look fun (and cold) enough for adults, too, to cool off a hot day. I really like that picture of your daughter holding the ladle. Such a fun age of discovery. It’s good to have these kinds of activities for siblings to do together to keep them getting along.

    Cool video – The gardening and oats look like super fun.

    Thank you
