This velcro and pompoms quick play idea for baby is a great idea to keep your older baby occupied for a while.
Some times(most of the times) you just have to keep baby play simple! Like with this activity with Velcro and Pompoms. I’ve seen time and again that it is the simple things that interest babies: a cardboard box, a set of keys, rocks, spoons, lids and jars etc. (Also check out this toddler toy made from Bottle Tops and Velcro)
I took an off-cut piece of velcro and simply stuck it to the wall with sticky putty. Then, I took out the biggest pompoms we have and showed W(14months at the time) what to do once, and he had a go at it, and loved it!
One could variate colour and size. Another idea for older toddlers is to use a picture on the wall and then add the velcro on top of the picture, so they can “fill” in the picture. Something simple as a tree with blossoms, for example.
Tip: If you do not have velcro available, use clear contact paper/strip instead.
Remember although baby play can be simple and easy, learning still takes place! This Velcro and pompoms activity is also good to encourage a baby to stand up against the wall.
