As Autumn is upon us we have used the opportunity to create a Fall inspired apple fine motor play busy bag.
The activity was incredibly easy to set up. I placed an apple shaped ice cube tray into our fantastic leaf shaped plastic tray from Tiger UK. Our leaf tray has already been used as a Jurassic Small World and a Coconut Sensory Bin so you can tell how much we love it! I placed a variety of different sized green and red Pom Poms to represent the apples.
It was Adam’s first go at using our wooden tongs so he spent most of the activity practising using the new tool. It took several attempts for him to hold it correctly but he enjoyed using it once the tongs were in his hands correctly.
We experimented with different ways that the apple pom poms could be arranged in the apple ice cube tray. Adam sorted the apples by colour and size.
Our apple fine motor play busy bag didn’t create any mess so I was able to leave it out over several days. Every now and again I would spot Adam at the apple busy bag placing the pom poms into the apple tray. We love independent busy bag activities!
As this activity requires no preparation, doesn’t create any mess and promotes independent play it can be classed as an HG friendly play activity. Take a look at our other activities suitable for Hyperemesis Gravidarum sufferers when they are caring for young children:

* Red and green Pom Poms in a variety of sizes
