Pom Pom Patterning

Our play tray table this week contained one activity.
A simple activity using egg cartons, pom poms, tongs and pattern cards. 
I found this idea at Ecole Petite Section.
I painted the dots to match the pom pom colours that I had.
The older children caught on to the idea quickly and filled up the cartons.
The younger children enjoyed using the tongs and placing the pom poms in the carton.  With a little help they started to match the colours from the cards
to the pom poms. 
A simpler idea for toddlers would be to paint the inside of the cartons.
I'll try that another time.
