As it was Hyperemesis Gravidarum Awareness Day yesterday it seemed only fitting that today’s play activity was an HG friendly one.
Adam loves pom poms. We have a large collection in one of his busy boxes and he frequently plays with them whilst I’m cooking. So we brought the pom poms into the living room and I gave him the large chocolate box I received for my birthday (thanks again Katrina!)
Adam starting putting the pom poms into the individual spaces on the tray. He specifically picked out the red pom poms at first. It’s a great activity for developing fine motor skills.
At Easter, Auntie Becky showed Adam it was great fun to put all of his plastic Easter eggs into a basket and then tip them out over his head. Adam has now transferred this game to most of his toys which can fit into a box. Pom poms would certainly be high on his list of favourite items to tip over.
Adam then spent ages transferring the pom poms from the floor, into a pile on one tray and then moving them across onto the other tray.
Later on Adam discovered the chocolate box tray made a noise when he pushed down on it.
He turned the tray over and squashed each section until the tray was flat.
We love activities that require minimum preparation for maximum distraction! Remember to check out our other Hyperemesis Gravidarum friendly play activities.
