Not only do my kids work on their fine motor skills (and so many of them this school year need it), but they also work on one-to-one correspondence.
I got the deviled egg trays at the dollar store. A handful of pompoms go in the center.
They shake the penny cup.
Heads = Put one pompom in one cup.
Tails = Take one pompom out.
Want to amp it up? Have them pick the pompoms with tweezers or clothespins.
Want to make it seasonal? Use orange pompoms in the fall (to resemble pumpkins.) You can even call it "Penny a Pumpkin"!
First person to fill up their tray wins!
