Christmas Pom-Pom Sorting

Christmas Pom-Pom Sorting

This Christmas Pom-Pom Sorting activity is super simple and great for both cognitive and fine motor development.  Classifying and sorting according to a common attribute is an important skill for preschoolers.  We chose to sort according to size, but you could easily sort based on color as well.  The tweezers must be held in the child’s hand similarly to a pencil, so it is great pre-writing practice as well!

Here’s what you’ll need:  tweezers, various sizes and colors of pom-poms (small, medium, and large), a marker, and 3 separate containers.
