How to use the Spring and Easter Pom Pom Mats template

Ask your child what image was formed. You can tell a short story or give a simple explanation of why the image is related to spring and Easter. Then, proceed to tracing and spelling the name of the object. Lastly, challenge kids to count the pom pom balls by color! This is a good way to practice their counting and color recognition skills!

(Optional) For Christians, the cross is a very important symbol of Easter. Christians believe it symbolizes Jesus’ coming back to life.
Spring starts when flowers start to bloom, so it is just right to have a flower made of colorful pom poms worksheet too! Flowers also symbolize new life, and Easter lilies in particular are an important Easter symbol.
Where there are flowers, there are ladybugs too! These cute, spotted insects are also abundant in spring.
Bees play an important role in the pollination and growth of flowers. Thanks to bees, we get to enjoy spring with blooming flowers, and of course, yummy honey!
Colorful butterflies are abundant in spring too! These pretty butterflies flying around flowerbeds are a great sight to see in spring. They are also known to be an Easter symbol as it symbolizes new life and a new beginning as a butterfly emerges from its cocoon.
Easter wouldn’t be complete without Easter baskets! It is like a symbolic nest that holds Easter eggs, which is a symbol of fertility and new life!
Can you use your fine motor skills to give this sweet baby lamb it's wool!? Spring is full of new life and babies, and your toddler will love this adorable baby sheep!
Chicks are one of the main symbols of spring and Easter because they symbolize new life. Their cute chirps and yellow feathers are loved by kids too!
9 Easter egg
Easter celebrations become more fun with these colorful Easter eggs! While working on this worksheet, you can explain to your child that eggs are also a symbol of new life and rebirth. You can also tell tales as to the history behind Easter eggs are colorful. Christians believe Simon of Cyrene found the eggs became colorful after he carried Jesus’ cross.
Cute baby bunnies are abundant in spring, making it a common symbol of spring and fertility. Later on, the story evolved into Easter bunnies carrying baskets with Easter eggs in it. Extend this activity by dressing up as an Easter bunny or by just simply sharing Easter egg treats with friends!
What skills will my child learn with the Spring and Easter Pom Pom Mats activity?
- Develop fine motor skills - picking up a pom pom using a tong and placing it correctly in the template will help develop their fine motor skills
- Develop patience and self-confidence - as they work on this activity, the pom poms may fall off and they have to repeatedly pick it up again with the tong. But after completing the picture, they will also develop self-confidence since they completed it themselves!
- Practice counting - at the bottom part of the worksheet, they can write the number of pom poms used for each color.
- Practice proper handgrip through tracing - they can also trace the name of the image formed at the bottom of each worksheet
- Enhance color recognition skills - while they count each colored pom pom, they become more mindful of the colors too!
- Learn religious and cultural beliefs - if you explain each spring and/or Easter symbol, they learn more about religious and cultural beliefs… in a fun way!
