20+ 1 Year Old Activities with Pom Poms

We are constantly doing 1 year old activities in my house.

My son  loves  busy baby activities that keep him entertained and having fun!  Each time I put something out for him, he goes to work immediately.  That’s why I love the simple pom pom baby play station that we set up for him.  He not only loved it, but his big sister did, too – that makes for one happy Mom!

I really recommend getting as many pom poms as possible (<—affiliate link to a huge bag of them!).  Or if you want to make your own, check out this tutorial on pom pom making techniques!

I always limited my pom pom use to art projects with kids, but if you have a large amount of them, you can really let kids use them in so many different ways.  They are the perfect thing to take out when you need to make dinner  or  when you need a quick activity!

How to Set Up a Pom Pom Play Station

We piled our pom poms into a basket and created a space where my son could drop, sort, and stick pom poms!

But, his absolute favorite item was the milk carton.  I cut out an opening at the bottom of the milk carton and he dropped the pom poms through the top.  Then,  he could reach in and find  them through the opening.  He did it over and over and over!  It was such a simple activity, but he learned so much and had a blast.

You might notice him hugging the milk carton in the picture below! 🙂

Fun doesn't have to be complicated ~ 1 year olds will love these pom pom activities!
