How to Set up Halloween Color Matching
Grab all your supplies. Place the purple, green and orange pom poms in a corresponding bowls. (I neglected to do this with my twins). Grab your Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stack & Roll Cups and turn them upside down so that the hole is facing up.
Invite your toddler to push the correct color pom pom down the cups.
I received Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stack & Roll Cups as a gift when first daughter was a baby. I loved the idea of them however my daughter never really knew how to played with them. They would frustrate her to no end but they made amazing color sorting tools when paired with pom poms!
