Rainbow Pom Pom Toss
I found this game online somewhere and sketched it in my idea book a few months ago. I finally decided to make it and I’ve tried it out with my kiddos and they LOVE it!
I call it Rainbow Pom Pom Toss (not sure where the toss part comes in because there is no tossing happening in this game!
All you need are dice and pom-poms.
Its really easy to play too! The children roll the die that you have programmed with the letters, numbers, or shapes that are on the mat. They place a coordinating pom-pom on the mat.
Here we are using the 1-6 mat. You should of heard the squeals of excitement when we played!! I’ve been asked 5 or 6 times today when we can play again!
I put the pom-poms in little buckets that I got in the Target Dollar Spot. The kiddos kept playing until their table ran out of pom-poms and then they put them all back and played again.
I told them if they rolled a number and didn’t have anymore pom-poms left in that color to roll again. I really wanted them keep playing and to learn to share.
We played with a dot die so that my kiddos had practice matching quantities on the die to the number on the mat.
I’ve also included mats for:
Lowercase letters a-z
And a blank sheet for you to write in whatever skills you would like for your kiddos to work on. I’ll be adding sight words later as well as pictures of two dice (when we start addition).
