Dropping poms down a cardboard tube. Seems simple enough, right? I added a degree of difficulty - pinching the poms with plastic tongs, and my little people were ready to go. And they liked it! Lucy was entertained for way longer than Milo, but I expected that because this is entertainment for younger kids. But after they both tired of the poms (dropping them down the tubes, transferring them from bowl to bowl, etc.) we did an experiment (and learned what an experiment is) and tried dropping different sized and shaped things down the tube to see what fit. I'm not going to lie - all of this happened within 20 minutes, but at least it was 20 minutes well spent. Success!
