Christmas Theme Pompom Activity

Activities with a Christmas theme are some of my favorites. They are inspired by the stories and traditions of the season, and combine wonderful colors and textures. This simple activity has several colorful options and is fun for toddlers and preschoolers.

This is a fun and easy craft for kids. Simply gather up all your pompoms, especially green, red and white.

We used a craft tray we made from a box lid to pick up the supplies, transport them to the work area, and use as a space for the activity.

We put a sheet of craft foam on the bottom of the tray to help keep the bottle caps from sliding around.


1. Build a pyramid to form a Christmas tree.

2. Place pompoms in the bottle caps, 1 large pompom or 2 -3 small pompoms. Use fingers or a grasping tool to pick up pompoms.




The following examples will give you more ideas for building and creating with pompoms!
