Painting with Strange Objects: Cotton Balls

Like bubble wrap and shaving cream, cotton balls are just plain fun for toddlers.

About a year ago, when Love Bug was nearing age 3 and in a phase where he didn’t mind getting messy with paint, we used cotton balls for painting.


Simple but potentially messy. A way to make it a little neater would be to use clothespins to hold the cotton balls (like we did with pompoms here).



About Kelly

I'm a stay-at-home mom to two boys and a girl. My Love Bug is 4 and has been doing art projects since just after turning 2. My Sweet Pea is 2 and tries to do everything his brother does. Little Flower is 4 months and has no idea of all the fun she has ahead of her.
