Cotton Ball Painting

This is an easy activity.
Just to make painting more fun! 

It’s perfect for little hands that have a hard time holding on to brushes. And still fun for older kids. My 6 year old still enjoyed this activity.

You will need:

1. Muffin/cupcake pan (you can use paper plates if you dont have this)
2. Cotton Balls
3. Laundry clips
4. Finger paints
5. Paper


I used 2 cotton balls for each color so the boys each had their own. 

I let those little hands put the laundry clips on the cotton balls.


Put some paint on the pan and start painting!



Teo wore a painting frock because at 1 year and 8 months he’s still a VERY messy painter and gets paint everywhere. 

The concentration face on this one…

It’s good to line the painting surface with newspaper and secure the paper on to the table. I used masking tape.

Sharing paint and cotton balls

Here is Caleb’s work of art.


And here is Teo’s.  

Teo took out some of the cotton balls and used his fingers to paint also.

We still had some paint left over. 


So I put the leftover paint on their hands and let them stamp / print it on to paper. 



30 minutes of messy fun. All done!


Thanks for stopping by! 

Till next time!
