Teach toddlers practical life skills with fun pom-pom sweeping game

This mom’s clever pom-pom game teaches kids practical skills to help them learn how to clean up after themselves. Celena Kinsey (@celenakinsey) is a TikToker and parent who frequently shares videos of DIY projects and sensory play activities. Kinsey recently posted a video showing how she uses a “pom-pom game” to teach her son to sweep up messes. First, she tapes a square on the floor with painter’s tape. Afterward, she scatters pom-poms and other small items around the area. She then gives her son a toddler-sized broom to “work on practical life sweeping skills and sweep the pom-poms into the square”. Finally, she gives him a small dustpan and brush to collect the pom- poms and put them back in the container. Viewers all over TikTok loved the practical playtime idea. As Kinsey shows, there are many fun ways to incorporate creative problem solving into your child’s routine
