Kids love pompom activities. I think it’s because pompoms are just so colorful and soft and all around fun! It’s hard to walk by a box of pompoms without reaching out to pet them.
One of our favorite Valentine’s Day activities is to just get out our red, white, and pink pompoms, put them in a bin and play with them. Add a few cup measures and a wide funnel, and you could have a happily playing kid for an hour! (seriously – I’ve seen it happen!).
If you’re looking for something a little more organized (although I promise, still very simple play ideas!), we collected 10 of our favorite Valentine’s Day activities using pompoms:
