Easy set up for Pom Pom Hide & Seek

Line up several magnetic letters on the baking sheet. I was able to get 5 in one row across and 3 down on my baking sheet. The number of letters you can fit will vary depending on the size of your baking sheet.

On a sheet of paper write down the matching letters. I wanted to work on matching lower case letters to upper case letters.

Pom Poms Everywhere

So it will be very tempting for your little one brush pom poms all over the place and some will roll away during the activity but I found that my three year old was too focused on finding the letters to even want to knock the Pom Poms around.

That was a different story once the activity was over and all the letters found! Then away went the Pom Poms all over the floor. But fear not I have a solution for that!
