There’s nothing like an activity with pom-poms! I don’t know about your kids, but MINE LOVE POM-POMS! They’re so versatile, colorful and fun. Of course dumping them and scattering them all over the place has to be the number one priority. But seriously, this Pom-pom Garland Match is super fun, engaging and helps improve sooooooo many (have you heard? Sooooo many) areas of childs’ development. It’s easy to set up, totally inexpensive and toddlers will have a blast matching the colorful pom-pom to their right spot.

Draw a garland line on the white cardstock. Then draw colored circles (according to the size and color of your pom-poms). Done! The child has to match pom-poms to the color on the garland and glue it right on top!
