We are 6 days in a junk play challenge and today’s prompt to play was to use plastic bottle found in a recycle bin.
Since I have a toddler, I decided to use a plastic bottle in the simplest way possible. This is also one of my toddler’s favorite activities – posting pom poms into a plastic bottle. There is another thing my toddler loves about this activity, but we’ll explain it later in this post.
What simple fine motor play activities your toddler loves?
For today’s play, only 2 things were needed: pom poms and clean plastic bottle. My daughter loves placing pom poms through the hole and it’s one of those activities she comes back to over and over. It’s awesome for fine motor practice, easy to set up. And easy to clean up afterwards. Especially since she loves to gather them and put them in the bottle.
Today’s post is part of 60 Day Junk Play Challenge and we had as material prompt today PLASTIC BOTTLE.
Make sure to stop by Treading on Lego to see the fun they had with a plastic bottle and Lego pieces today!
