Indoor Kids Activity - Pom Pom Racing

This is really a great activity to teach children how to blow through a straw. It may sound like a simple concept, but children need to learn this.

They only need to do it once or twice, and then they have it!

This is also a great way to spend a rainy day inside! We have done this a few times… INDOOR ENERGY BUSTERS  are worth their weight in gold!!… here is a link to a few more ideas…

Pom Pom Racing - Kids Activity

We set up a race track with a start and finish line, placed our pom poms on the start line, each with their own blowing straw, and then we were ready to race!

Ready…Set…GO GO GO…!!!!

I won’t tell you who won, but I will say that after a few rounds of blowing through the straw, and another few rounds of blowing without the straw I felt slightly light headed!!

A slightly shorter straw (I cut on in half) is a little more easy for a younger child!

You will be surprised at how much air you need to move a light little pom pom!!

Kids Indoor Activity - Racing Pom POms

Great Birthday Party or Group activity!

After a few rounds of racing we decided to up the stakes a little and set box goals at the other end!

Now you had to really focus – no more random blowing – and it is a little harder than it looks to get the pom pom into the box!!

I used two boxes I found in the magic box (our recycling) and stuck them to the floor with masking tape.

A little more time – and slightly out of breath – we moved onto Pom Pom Hockey – with the same objective…

From start to goal…

Moving a pom pom along the floor with a straw requires a little concentration!!
