Materials for Toddler Play with Plastic Eggs and Pom Poms
- Plastic Easter eggs.
- Pom poms.
- Muffin tin or other container(s).
I put pom poms into the eggs and placed the eggs in a muffin tin. That was all the preparation I needed to do – perfect!
N pretty much grabbed the muffin tin out of my hands 😉
He wasted no time opening the eggs and taking out the pom poms. Some pom poms went flying, he was working so fast 😉
N experimented with transferring pom poms from one egg to another
before he decided to put all the pom poms back into the muffin tin
and turned to exploring the Easter eggs.
He tried out different ways of putting the two halves together,
and then he discovered that he was able to stack the halves!
He really enjoyed this new discovery and kept stacking and restacking for quite a while.
And the pom poms still fit in there, too! 🙂
