Week 22: Wet cotton balls

20 Aug

Cotton balls

 

The inspiration for this activity comes from: Fun at home with kids

All that is needed is cotton balls (I added some make up removers too), a container with water and food colouring. Too easy!

I added a cotton ball in to the water and straight away Princess Peanut grabbed it up… but once she did she quickly dropped it! Unimpressed Mumma!!IMG_8145

 

But like the determined Princess she is, in went some more cotton balls (Still not overly thrilled with the feel of the cotton balls).IMG_8147

 

What happens if I squish them Mumma?

I added some food colouring in to the middle of some dry cotton balls and then we added them in to the water. She was mesmerised by the colours bleeding.

Mumma, that was fun, but let’s pack up now! She grabbed these two bowls herself and started taking out the cotton balls.

And in her usual style… “Mess mess mess” she grabbed a scarf to clean up the water while I was getting a towel! Funny poppet!

 

Verdict: quick, cheap and easy to prepare and do. We had everything on hand, and while Princess Peanut’s pants got wet (and needed to dry) it wasn’t that messy!

Extension: the colours in the cotton balls worked fairly well, but not quite what I was expecting. I wonder if I dyed the cotton balls first and let them dry, then put them in the water whether they would be a bit more enticing for Princess Peanut…
