Rainy Day Fun

Aug.6.2012
Hi Everyone!! 
I've gotten a few people telling me in the comments they can't find the rainbow printout i used for the pom-pom game.
First i want to say i'm so sorry that it has taken me so long to re-find it!
Here is the link specifically to the exact Rainbow i used:

If you want to check out somemore here is the link to the website where i found them,they are under the title "Fine Motor and Visual Perceptual Pages"

Have Fun!!


As most of you know we live in the state of RAIN.  We just had a couple weeks of pure sunshine and it was amazing! Living here really makes you appreciate and take advantage of those sunny days when they come around!
When it is raining it means a lot of indoor time, but it doesn't always have to be boring!  Recently i did this quick and easy little activity for Hailey to help keep her busy on one of those particularly long and rainy days. 
For me it was a win-win activity not only did she have fun But it also helped her improve her counting and color matching! YAY!


This by far has to be one of the easiest projects to make! 

There's not much to do to make this project. I printed out and laminated these pictures that i found online, Here is the link where i got the pictures (thank you Tasha!)

Anyways i had some pom poms and magnets 

Glued a little piece of the magnet to the pom pom...this was kind of the tedious part...lol

Once i finished that i put the activity sheet on a cookie sheet

 The excitement is building...she can't wait!

Read, Set Go!  

 Magnets stick to the cookie sheet...i LOVE it!

She  loves it too!

One rainy day activity down....here's to hoping the sun wants to come back and visit us!


Have fun!

  11. Such a cute idea, my 2 year old (and prob even my 4 year old for a short while) will love this! I'm curious, what type of glue did you use to glue the magnets to the pom-poms? In the past when I tried to glue velcro to pom-pom's, I couldn't get them to stick? Thanks so much!

  18. I love your site! I am interested to find out where you found the rainbow and seven continents work mat! I can't find them!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Where did you find the templates? I clicked on the templates you posted but did not see the templates you printed. I love the ones you printed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Has anyone found out where to find the number template and the seven continents? I can't find them :( tank you, such great ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can't find them either, that rainbow is different on that website too. I like the one shown because it only has 9 red pom poms the other has 16 I think that is too many. Help

  22. Hi,

    Love this idea! The trays have a Montessori type learning feel to them. I'm going to pin this to my Montessori board. Your daughter is stinkin' cute by the way.

    We're having our inaugural Eat Make Grow Blog Hop. We are looking for folks to link up who want to share what they have been eating with their families, growing in their gardens or making with all their creative impulses. If you're interested, I hope you'll hop on over and link up a couple of your posts. It's a way for you to grow your readership and find other like minded mamas.

    Hope to see you there,

    Foy

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would love to find the 7 continents page that you have. I have looked through the links you have posted already and it doesn't seem to be on any of them. Has anyone else been able to find it?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you! I've been madly searching for the map, too and having no luck! We're big travelers and that would be PERFECT for my daughter! Thank you so much and good luck with your move! I know first hand how hard that is with little ones!

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is SO great! Have you found the 7 continents yet? My twins are obsessed with maps and this would be just fantastic! THANK you in advance! :)

  33. Hi Ladies,
    I did a quick google search and found the continents photo. http://competitionaffairs.blogspot.com/2011/02/world-geography-facts-at-glance.html

  34. I saw this on Pinterest and jumped over, I thought the number printable looked familiar! It was, I made it! ;-) Ha Ha! So glad you were able to use it, my girl loves her pom pom magnets too! We use cookie sheets and magnets for everything it seems!

    Here's a direct link to the number printable: http://www.1plus1plus1equals1.net/2010/06/preschool-printables-pom-pom-numbers/

  35. I just saw this post on the Creative Ideas from Moms board on Pinterest. I will have to try it with our four two year-old toddlers. It looks like so much fun (and a great learning tool for colors). Please come by and link this to Artsy Play Wednesday (and then we will link it to the new Artsy Play Wednesday Pinterest Board which has over 780 followers so far).

  37. This is great! And using the magnets with laminated paper for multiple uses -- really good idea!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi, these are fantastic! Would you consider selling a set of them? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Found your awesome idea on pinterest! I am ready to get this started, but I wonder what size of paper did you use? It looks like it may be longer than a 8 1/2"X11".
    Thanks for sharing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi! This is a great idea! Just a quick question. Did you have any issues with the magnets sticking together then falling off the pom pom's? What type of glue did you use? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi, loved these activity ideas! thanks for sharing. Can you please tell me where and how did you get these sheets laminated? thanks.
