This activity promotes grasping skills and provides tactile input by creating a little bird from differently sized pom-poms.
For this activity, you will need 3 pom-poms in different sizes. You can use almost any pom-pom color.
Start by instructing the child to cut an oval shape out of the cardboard (length should be about 2″ – 3″).
Glue the large pom-pom (red) to the oval-shaped cardboard. This will be the bird’s body.
Glue the medium pom-pom (red) on top of the large pom-pom. This will be the bird’s head.
Glue the smallest pom-pom (yellow) to the medium pom-pom forming a bird’s beak.
Glue the wiggle eyes above the beak.
