This pom pom collage activity is really easy to set up! Working with those small pom poms is great for practicing fine motor skills.

We tried two types of pom pom collage – one on contact paper and one using glue and construction paper.
For the contact paper collage I used some white contact paper (as I thought that our current tablecloth might confuse matters with clear contact paper!) and taped it to the table, sticky side up. Then I put out all our pompoms, including these fabulous neon poms and tie-dye poms, both from craftprojectideas.com. The pack of neon poms was particularly useful for this activity as it included some teeny tiny pom poms (0.2″ wide!) – perfect for working on those fine motor skills!
F placed the pom poms onto the contact paper, re-positioning as he saw fit. Check out that pincer grip!
This pom pom collage unfortunately isn’t for permanent display – the pom poms won’t hold to the contact paper if you turn it vertically.
Then our next collage used some construction paper and glue. F applied the glue to the paper and then added the pom poms.
After the glue had dried a few fell off – but most held!
Obviously my son was just placing the pom poms randomly for these collages but older children could be encouraged to make patterns or shapes.
Please check out what the rest of the team has been up to this week!
