Super Simple Toddler Activity

So I wanted to share a delightfully simple activity Emma and I did together yesterday morning.  She has been very interested in colors lately, and can name all the basic ones.  And sometimes she even matches the correct name with the correct color! For example, she calls one pair of her shoes "the pink shoes". 
    Since she is so interested, I thought I should come up with a project to explore the concept a bit further.  I wanted it to be both a learning experience and a fun game! I figured I'd share what I came up with:

I first cut pom-poms in half and glued them on to the bottom of an egg carton
(I used hot glue, but you could probably use other kinds of glue)
And that's pretty much it, then you just take a couple pom poms of each color
 and place them in the coordinating colored cup


It's surprising how big a hit something this simple can be!

Emma spent 30 minutes (eternity in toddler time)  taking these balls out and putting them back in
It took her a few minutes to figure out the concept but once she did, she was pretty excited! And I was impressed with her super amazing color-sorting skills.

Enjoy!
