Preschool and Toddler Fine Motor Sorting Activities
I got this idea from our Parents As Teachers Educator who had come to our home to do a screening for our foster children. This skill encourages color sorting, sorting by size, and fine motor skills. All you need is six different colors and sizes of the craft pom poms and an old egg carton. You can find these in the craft section at Walmart or at craft stores. Encourage your toddler to sort the pom poms by size. Tell her to put the big ones in the back and the small ones in the front. Then have her match the pom poms by color. If you have a spoon or these Easter egg holders, have your toddler practice moving and sorting the pom poms with the spoon or holders for fine motor skill practice. My kids love this activity!
Our littlest one is enjoying putting the pom poms in an old Parmesan cheese container. Then he dumps them out and starts over again.
