How to Adapt this Activity for Your Childs Skill Level 

You can modify this Heart Pom Pom Sorting Activity ⁣to match your child’s skill level:


1. For Very Young Children

For very young children and those that haven’t learned their colors yet, you could just start practicing their pincer grasp or use the tweezer to practice fine motor skills by picking up pom-poms and putting them on the hearts. Don’t worry about color matching at this point.


2. For Older Children

For older or those that already know some colors, you can practice matching the colored pom-poms to the correct colored heart.

You can also practice sorting the pom poms into groups before putting them on the hearts.


3. For Very Able Children

For very able children, you can add counting to the activity. Start by counting how many hearts there are on the paper and how many hearts there are of each color. Count the number of pom-poms you put on the hearts or practice adding one more to each heart.
