Play invitation: Fuzz Balls and Chopsticks
Super easy set-up, super fun results. A pack of 80 colored pompoms, a few implements (tiny spoons, kid chopsticks....), and 6-cup muffin tins. One instruction: sort.
They had a lot of fun with it, using different tools and different sorting methods. The only sticking point is (a) Erin only ended up with 1 purple pompom and (b) I could only find one of the "kid" chopsticks. I pulled out some regular chopsticks and told the kids that the young 2 class in Robin's preschool did this activity with regular chopsticks, hoping to inspire them to at least try. To no avail. Nonetheless they had fun. And easy setup/cleanup means it was an all-around win.
