Just a very simple idea for quieter sessions. Pom poms are so quiet. Children get the pom-poms with chopsticks or tweezers. good for counting sorting and fine manipulative. Can be done individually or they could choose a number then race to collect.
The infants will enhance/improve both ulnar and pincer grasps by picking up the ice cube to explore it, and also by manipulating the popsicle stick (with ice on it) by making motions with their hands to create a painting.
