The Baby Times has now become The Toddler Times! Why?.... because my baby is a toddler now...sob, sob. Every Tuesday I am going to try to post toddler related themes and ways that we can enrich our toddler's lives together. This week's issue focuses on a simple and inexpensive sensory activity.
During our last Target trip,Sunshine girl asked me to buy pom poms for her for her crafts, well little man thought they were for him!
I thought- okay as long as I'm here and he doesn't try to eat them, why not let him play. What a great tactile activity. So I got two containers and filled one with the pom poms. He then started transferring them from one container to the other. Next, I sorted them by color. Little Man only tried to put them in his mouth once. So colorful and round- he probably wondered if it was candy in the bowl! I called them balls, which he understands is a toy and he didn't try to eat them again.
