These math activities with pom poms are perfect for young kids.
This post is part of the Math Manipulatives Series, hosted by School Time Snippets. The series features a wide range of child-friendly manipulatives that can be used in math play.
Our choice of manipulative is the humble pom pom. Pom poms are perfect for young kids after they are past the age of taste-testing everything! They’re soft, light and available in a huge variety of colours and sizes. We’re very lucky to receive a healthy supply from the splendid people over at craftprojectideas.com and although we use most of them for crafts, the pom poms have other great uses too!
