The kids counted, stacked and balanced, tossed, scooped and poured, and overall had a great time. Small worlds are a great way for kids to learn while playing. Especially when it comes to testing out concepts. Plus small worlds are (usually) super quick and easy to setup.
Supplies & Instructions
White Pom Poms
Glitter Foam Balls (dollar tree)
There's no real prep for this one, except setting out the loose parts in an inviting way.
I would like to remind you, that my loose parts collection has been years in the making so yours may not start out with as many items as ours, AND it doesn't need to! Use cotton balls instead of pom poms, or real ice cubes instead of acrylic one.
If you are interested in adding to your loose parts stash, my favorite places to find loose parts are dollar tree, target dollar spot, hobby lobby (crafts section and seasonal section), and then there have been a few rare finds at Marshalls and Home Goods.
