A DIY Quiet Toy
I’m always on the lookout for easy toys that my daughter can play with on her own (preferably quietly!).
This little container of pom poms has been a huge hit in our house and she loves to dump them all out (or have me hold them all) and then carefully put them back in one and at a time.
It costs almost nothing to make and takes about five minutes to assemble.
Pom Poms in a Container
I know this looks pretty unexciting, but this has been one of my daughter’s consistently favorite toys in our on-the-go bag (for church or meetings or airplane rides). And it’s so easy and small.
First, Get Some Pom Poms
I like the multi-color/multi-size ones because it gives me the chance to work on colors and size ordering with Ella.
Then, Find a Small Container
Just a little inexpensive plastic one, or even a leftover yogurt or sour cream container works great.
Finally, Cut a Hole in the Lid
Using a craft blade or sharp knife, carefully cut a hole in the lid (you may want to use a bit of sandpaper to smooth out the edges afterward). Ta-da! Done.
Step Around in The Pom Poms
This is an important step that must not be missed (at least not if you’re my toddler).
