Playing with Pom Poms

Another simple toy that the children have been enjoying is a tray of pom poms,
tubes taped together and a melon scoop.
The pom poms become jammed in the tubes and a bonus element
is for the children to try to figure how to get them out.
Shaking works really well and is fun.
Using the melon scoop to scoop up the pom poms is a novel experience
for most of the children.
 Figuring out how to hold it is a first step.
Then how to get a pom pom in it before transferring to the tube.
Even without using the scoop this activity is a high interest
to toddlers.
