Pom Poms and Tweezers

I would like to say that I didn’t eat all of the Ferrero Rocher just so that Sophie could use the tray… but that would be a lie. The worst thing is I don’t even like Ferrero Rocher!

For this activity, we used an empty chocolate box, some pom poms and a pair of Gator Grabber Tweezers. I have wanted to buy a set of these tweezers for ages but you could probably just use kitchen tongs for this activity.


I put showed Sophie how to use the tweezers to pick up the pom poms and place them in the chocolate tray. She hasn’t got the hand of squeezing them yet but she did really well at picking the pom poms up as they were just the right size to get wedged in the tweezers when she pressed down. When she knocked them on the plastic tray, they dropped out. This activity really developed her hand eye coordination.
